Room five have been learning about Static Electricity, we have completed some experiments to learn how Static Electricity works.

The first experiment we tried was making our hair static by rubbing a balloon against our hair.

Another experiment we tried was when we used a charged balloon to pick up light objects such as, salt, tissue paper, tinfoil and rice bubbles.

Our favourite experiment was when we charged the balloon and placed it near florescent light bulb.  The part of the light bulb closest to the balloon flashed.  It was awesome!!! 

We are now learning about lightning.  Get ready to be electrified!
