This Static Electricity lesson plan also includes:
- Lab & Experiment
- Join to access all included materials
Young electrical engineers use balloons, cereal, and PVC pipe to test how positive or negative charged particles can attract or repel each other. First they attract Rice Krispies with a static-charged balloon, and then they use two static-charged balloons to see how electrons repel each other. In the final experiment, they bend water using a negatively charged piece of PVC pipe.
- Experiments are fun and practical for any reading level
- Helpful as a group activity or independent project
