A shocking encounter!
Your hair stands up. Sparks fly as you’re getting dressed. Do you feel an electric discharge when you shake a friend’s hand? No doubt, you’re a victim of static electricity! Our young scientists will explore this phenomenon using our incredible Van de Graaff generator (250,000 volts) and Wimshurst machine. These experiments will make their hair stand on end!
