Van de Graaff Generator by Artec - Make Your Own Static Electricity

by Artec-Educational

 

Artec's Van de Graaff hand-cranked generator is the perfect product to teach your students and children about static electricity with hands-on experience.  The hand-cranked Van de Graaff generator allows you to make your own static electricity by turning the hand-crank which turns the rubber belt allowing for an accumulation of electrons on the aluminum-wrapped plastic sphere.  Experiment with the phenomena caused by static electricity by performing multiple experiments: make the electrostatic pompons stand up by moving your finger towards the Van de Graaff sphere and make a completely dark room light up by using static electricity to power a neon bulb (included).  Important product note: You will hear a popping sound when you touch the plastic sphere to discharge the static electricity, but you will not feel pain.  Ages 8 and up.  Materials used: paper, aluminum, and styrol.
