Welcome to Goodchild Engineering
We are an independent consulting/engineering firm that specialize in high voltage and power electronics devices for theatrical, education, and hobby. We have built everything from musical lightning machines that play music with the power of plasma to laser harps that use light like strings on a harp. Our devices are a mix of music, engineering, art, and science. We strive to help educate the hobby community and get kids of all ages interested in science and engineering. This site has a chronicle of work that can be used as a reference to built your own devices and mad scientist contraptions. We can build almost anything that you mite see in a mad scientist's laboratory so if you can imagine it we can built it!
