Scientific Enquiry - Static Electricity

 

We have been  exploring what happens when we create static electricity with balloons!

Did you know that they can make your hair stand on end? Balloons will also stick to the wall once charged AND stick up on the ceiling! 

We went on to see how bubbles, water,paper and salt react when they are near a static charge - with surprising results! 

What a fun afternoon! Take  a look at our photos to show you what we have been finding out!
