What to Expect

Hamilton's 2nd industrial revolution Defined both Hamilton & Canada as an advanced society


History  - The greatest development in Hamilton's History was about to unfold, but would it work?  Only one person knew for sure.  Tesla had patented the complete system in 1888.

Prior to Nikola Tesla, In Edison's DC electric micro systems, electricity    traveled only a  few miles.  The Five Johns plans called for a transmission that was 35 miles (54 Km) long.  

They consulted the great inventor, Nikola Tesla, who assured them that it was possible. John Patterson's dream would come true on August 25, 1898, when power arrived in Hamilton over the 2nd longest power transmission in the world.

Plasma Ball


The plasma ball is built using a small tesla coil.  

This plasma ball,  16 inches in size,  is used in presentation to demonstrate how a tesla coil can illuminate the plasma inside a ball.

This Plasma Ball capability to light up florescent lights was demonstrated by students  at BASEF 2019.

This Plasma Ball will be on display at the Festival.  Kids will have an opportunity to experience first hand.  

This is a form of Tesla Magic.

Tesla Coil


The Tesla Coil was critical component in the wireless communication of the early 1900's.  The coil was first demonstrated by Nikola Tesla in 1898.

This coil is used in presentation to duplicate Tesla's magical demonstration in 1898.   Students get an opportunity to see if a florescent light will light up in their hands.

This coil will be demonstrated at the Festival.  It plays music and produces spark that 2 feet long.  

Learn more about the Tesla Coil and how it can inspire kids of all ages.

The Cataract Power Company building plans above show the layout of the site located at 366 Victoria Ave, Hamilton, Just north of the General Hospital.

The original building is still standing, as a testimony to Hamilton's history as the first Major City in Canada to be powered using Nikola Tesla's AC power system.

The company later became the Dominion Power and Transmission Co. Ltd.  

new discovery


John Patterson learned about Nikola Telsa's AC Polyphase System as early as 1890.  In 1894 he traveled to Niagara Falls to view the Adams Power Generation Station under construction.  Patterson quickly confirmed his knowledge when the Five Johns used Tesla's inventions to deliver power to Hamilton.  Decew PGS  today is the oldest continuously functioning power generation station around.  Decew I Power Generating Station commenced producing of hydroelectric power on August  25, 1898.  

This development sparked a whole new age.  It is referred to as the 2nd industrial revolution.
