FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Indiana’s NewsCenter) - In this week's episode of Cool Science Monday, Martin Fisher from Science Central will talk about a Tesla Coil. It’s a high-voltage, low-current electrical device. It was invented by Nikola Tesla.

In this “Part A” segment, Martin used it to show that certain materials are good conductors (attractors) of electricity, and others are insulators (don’t conduct electricity).
