The Science (?) of Galvanism: "What's in the Box?" Box 3-Object #1
What's in the Box? Join me as I explore one of the artifacts found in Box #3. This week: a medical electricity at home kit!
Museum artifacts have many stories they can tell! You can explore what materials they are made of, how they were made, who made them, how they were used, or how they changed society – and so much more! Think of this video as the abridged history behind medical electricity, where I explore just a few chapters of its story.
I challenge you to take a look at the objects around you and think about all the stories they have to tell!
This video is part of our "What's in the Box" series, so check-out the playlist for "What's in the Box: Box #3" to see more abridged object histories, as well as behind the scenes museum work.
