What Can We Learn from The Sorcerer’s Apprentice?

When you watch science-fiction movie, you know that whatever that is showing in the movie is usually fiction and most of the time, exaggerating. However, when I was watching The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, I had a strong feeling to introduce this movie to my students who love Science.

In the movie, Dave Stutler, a physics student, uses Tesla coil to impress his childhood crush and later to destroy Morgana (the evil sorceress). Of course, it is a Disney movie; there is fantasy, magic and sorcery. Nonetheless, if you are interested in Science, you will find out more about Tesla coil after watching the movie.

A Tesla coil creates high-voltage electricity. A small Tesla coil is able to power light bulbs without wires while a big Tesla coil, like the one in the movie, is able to kill an evil sorceress. It is interesting, isn’t it?

What cause molecules to heat up? They vibrate. It is dull if you learn this from the textbook. But if you watch the movie and find out that you can “see” the molecules heating up, it makes Science more interesting to learn.

Furthermore, a beautiful song is played when Dave is impressing his childhood crush with Tesla coil. Amazing scenes with beautiful song makes a good movie. The song is Secrets by OneRepublic and I have been listening to the song repeatedly.

Below is the lyrics of the song as the ending of this post. Listen to the song and see if the song resonates with your soul 🙂

(1) I need another story
Something to get off my chest
My life gets kinda boring
Need something that I can confess

‘Til all my sleeves are stained red
From all the truth that I’ve said
Come by it honestly I swear
Thought you saw me wink, no
I’ve been on the brink, so

# Tell me what you want to hear
Something that will light those ears
Sick of all the insincere
So I’m gonna give all my secrets away

This time don’t need another perfect lie
Don’t care if critics ever jump in line
I’m gonna give all my secrets away

(2) My God, amazing how we got this far
It’s like we’re chasing all those stars
Who’s driving shiny big black cars
And everyday I see the news
All the problems that we could solve
And when a situation rises
Just write it into an album
Send it straight to gold
But I don’t really like my flow, no, so

#

(3) Oh, got no reason, got no shame
Got no family I can blame
Just don’t let me disappear
I’ma tell you everything

All my secrets away, all my secrets away
