The Van de Graaff generator in the Web site image is for illustrative purposes; this item is not included in the kit. We recommend using a tabletop generator, item #756209.

Demonstrations that may be performed using this kit include:

  • You Light Up My Life—In addition to creating brilliant sparks, a fluorescent bulb partially illuminates as sparks make contact.

  • Flying Peanuts—Packing peanuts repel one another and fly out of a cup.

  • Up, Up, and Away—Balloons connected by a string acquire the same charge from the dome and repel each other.

  • Pie Pan UFOs—Stacked aluminum pie pans repel each other and fly off one at a time.

  • Hair-Raising Experience—Hairs of faux fur acquire like charges that repel each other, causing them to stick up.
