A Hair-Raising Experiment: Science 9 Studies Electricity

The Science 9 students have started a new unit on electricity. To bring the concepts to life, the students had an opportunity to use the Van de Graaff generator, which uses friction to produce a large static charge on the metal dome. At the base of the generator, a static charge is produced and the moving belt carries this charge to the dome. The students applied their understanding about the properties of static electricity and participated in some hair-raising experiences!
