Science B18: I’ll Make Your Hair Stand on End


Award-winning video and lesson investigations for young children on the topic of static electricity

Product Description

Video and lesson investigations on the topic of static electricity. Key concepts include:

  • A rubbed comb (or balloon) can pull some other objects towards it. It does not need to touch the object to make it move.
  • A rubbed balloon can also make things move apart.
  • When a balloon is rubbed, it becomes ‘charged’.
  • This charge is called ‘static electricity’.
  • Static electricity can make objects attract or repel each other.
  • A static charge results when one object picks up electrons (negative charges) from another object.
  • The object that picks up the electrons becomes negatively charged.
  • The object that loses electrons becomes positively charged.
  • These oppositely charged objects will then be attracted to one another.
  • Opposites attract!
