Everyone needs a few kilovolts now and then. Using a flyback transformer or an automotive coil it is possible to build a moderately high voltage supply. Several interesting projects can be done with this, including ionic lifters, Kirlian photography and alpha particle detection, not to mention big fancy sparks.
Cost: Free, although pass-the-hat style donations to support the lab are encouraged.

On Work In Progress Night a foulaber brings a work in progress to the lab and works on it for a few hours. Anyone interested can drop in to check it out and discuss the project, receive or give advice, or bring a similar project and work on it. There is no promise that anything will actually work, but it should be fun!!!
