Your students will be amazed as you show them how to levitate a piece of tinsel using static electricity as the force! All the science is explained in this levitating effect which uses common materials. Complete instructions to build and create a static charge are presented in a visual format. The activity is fun and connects to the NGSS. Details are provided.
Important note: Winter is the optimal time for static electricity effects. Very cold and dry days are optimum. During warmer days, the presence of water in the atmosphere inhibits this force. These details are discussed in the packet.
