Take an “enlightening” journey into the experiment that changed the course of history! Over 250 years ago, (in June of 1752, to be precise), Ben Franklin “shocked” the world with his discovery that lightning held electricity - and thus rendered scientists “thunderstruck”! This entertaining and educational play brings the history and science curriculum to life.
