Static Electricity

This Static Electricity lesson plan also includes:

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.
