We decided to do another experiment today with static electricity. We used balloons and rubbed them on our head to create static and then used the balloon to pick up pepper. We also rubbed the balloons on our head and attached them to the wall. We timed how long they stayed up…most dropped within about 15 minutes or so. We also brushed our hair and then used the brush to pick up pieces of tissue paper. The kids really enjoyed it. We talked about if it would be strong enough to pick up our car or maybe a doll and tried a few different things. Lots of learning and lots of fun!
