In this activity, learners examine fingerprints. Learners leave a hidden print on a surface and then make their own print detecting powder from graphite (found in pencils).
In this activity about electricity, learners explore how static electricity can make electric "fleas" jump up and down. Learners use a piece of wool cloth or fur to charge a sheet of acrylic plastic.
In this physics activity (page 6 of the PDF), learners will explore how static electricity affects surrounding objects.
This is a series of demonstrations about different electrical and magnetic phenomena.
In this activity (page 2 of PDF under GPS: Kinetic Sculpture Challenge Activity), learners will predict which objects have to overcome the most static friction to slide down a ramp.
This is an activity (located on page 3 of PDF under Gecko Feet Activity) about modeling a nanoscale phenomenon (gravity-defying gecko feet) with macroscale objects (shoes).
Learners observe a simple balloon model of an electrostatic precipitator. These devices are used for pollutant recovery in cleaning industrial air pollution.
In this activity, learners investigate static electricity using everyday objects at four different stations.
In this activity about electricity, learners produce a spark that they can feel, see, and hear. Learners rub a Styrofoam plate with wool to give it an electric charge.
In this physics activity (page 3 of the PDF), learners will explore the concept of static electricity.
In this activity, learners will listen to as many radio stations as possible to discover that AM radio signals can travel many hundreds of miles at night.
In this activity about electricity, learners suspend pieces of tape from a straw to construct an electroscope, a device that detects an electrical charge.
In this quick activity (on page 2 of the PDF under GPS: Body Electricity Activity), learners will observe how dry breakfast cereal appears to dance when it gets close to a balloon charged with static
This activity is an investigation of static electricity. What happens when you get "static cling?" Basically, you pile up electrons on one thing, which attracts the protons in something else.
