Safely Experiment with Electrostatic Forces

Van de Graaff Generators are a fun and 'shocking' (but perfectly safe) static electricity demonstration that kids and parents love to see! Build your own hand crank version of this classic static generating device with this paper DIY kit. Once assembled the generator measures 10" x 3" x 3".  Includes a 1.5" light bulb that will spark orange when it touches the dome while the generator is cranked. Required scissors and tape not included. *Please note, this product does not generate enough static to raise your hair but it will raise mylar 'hair' you attach to the globe. For adults and kids ages 8+ (with adult supervision).
