TSC Outreach Table at the Nikola Tesla Celebrations in Philadelphia, PA

On a rather windy Saturday afternoon, TSC representatives set up an outreach table outside the Independence Visitor Center in Philadelphia, PA. The event was organized by the Nikola Tesla Inventors Club on the occasion of Tesla’s birthday and presented an opportunity to inform the public about the significance of Tesla’s only remaining laboratory in Shoreham, NY.

In the evening, TSC President Jane Alcorn and Secretary Chris Wesselborg spoke at the Inventors Club convention, which was hosted at the home of the Ethics Society. Before an audience of about 50 people they gave a brief history of Tesla’s Wardenclyffe laboratory and reported on the current status of the property. Judging by the audience reaction, the poster boards gave an impressive view of the site. And the newly created slideshow with pictures recently taken on the property and inside the former laboratory building helped create an historical perspective of the site as well as provide a context with present and future opportunities.
