With this portable Van De Graaff generator you can perform many classic static electricity experiments. All you need are a few bits of tape, an aluminum can, and batteries. Watch the static charge suspend the included Mylar strips, and then collapse them with a touch of your finger, only to watch the strips pop back up! The 15-page illustrated guide explains the science of static electricity and provides instructions on how to bend a thin stream of water, push an empty can, light a small fluorescent tube (not included), and more. Requires 2 AA batteries and an empty soda can.
