Tuesday - Grades 4-8
Experimentation and discovery:
We'll take advantage of the dryer air in the second session to study static electricity. Each student will make and keep a hand-held Van De Graaff generator. Topics will include DC motors, the triboelectric series, Atomic theory, and a very cool hands-on version of the Geiger–Marsden experiment where students get to collect and interpret data very similar to the original experiment with marbles in place of radioactive alpha particles - culminating in electrostatic levitation!
