    I've been to the Science Centre a lot over the years - mostly as a kid, but also as an adult. Every single time, I have fun and end up learning something new. There are a few must-see sections for me, but I think my favourite place is probably the planetarium.

The Ontario Science Centre is famous for its daily visitor favourite, the Electricity Show! At the end of the show visitors line up and get to touch that machine that "makes your hair stick up funny". What is this machine actually called? (Hint: if you get stuck look for a host in a white lab coat)
