Product Details

Your students will get a charge out of these electrostatic lab activities! Four mini-lab stations are set up around the classroom, each a self-contained activity focusing on a specific topic.
• Sticky Charges—Students investigate positive and negative electric charges and observe how like and unlike charges behave.
• The Mysterious Moving Board—Students will be amazed as they discover how an uncharged insulator can be “mysteriously” attracted by a charged object.
• Ready, Set, Charge!—The interaction of charged pith balls help students distinguish between charging by conduction and induction.
• Curving Water—As students observe the effect of an electric charge on polar molecules, they have fun seeing just how far the stream of water will bend.

The activity-stations format allows students to do more hands-on science in less time! Kit includes complete instructions with reproducible student handouts and valuable Teacher Notes.

Super Value Kit is complete for 12 student groups. All materials are reusable!
