During Week 9 of Term 2, Year 11 Extension Science students had the opportunity to visit the Electric Power Engineering Centre, at the University of Canterbury.

Highlights included roasting marshmallows using plasma and a range of demonstrations in the high voltage laboratory that can generate up to 1.4 million volts in a lighting impulse. All students had a great time and the Electric Power Engineering Centre was a great host!
