A turbine will spin when water goes in.
A big tube called a penstock brings water from the reservoir to the turbine. It looks like a water slide!
The electric car runs on 8 batteries in the front and eight batteries in the back. That makes 16 batteries!
This was a demonstration of Tesla’s power generator. It lookd like lightning! It also smelled like burnt ions. We had to wear hearing protection because it was very loud. He invented it so that everyone could have free power. Hmmm….. but we don’t have free power. : (
The building was huge!
