Bill Nye The Science Guy on Static Electricity

Shock viewers with this video clip about static electricity! Bill Nye sports a wacky wig and explains how electrons get stored up on the surface of a Van de Graff generator and then jump onto a metal ball. If you do not have your own Van de Graff apparatus for demonstrating electrostatics, then this is worth showing during your elementary electricity unit!
