Static Electricity!

This afternoon, we explored static electricity.

Some children rubbed the balloons on their heads and made their hair stand on end! The hairs were repelling each other because they had become positively charged. The negative charge had gone into the balloon.

Once the balloons were negatively charged, we managed to get them to stick to the wall.

Ask the children how we did it.
