Discover Electrons and Electricity in This Great Kit!
There’s a good chance you or someone in your family has a computer, cell phone, tablet, or some other kind of electronic device. Notice that word: “electronic.” It tells you that these devices use electrons to work. Sometimes electrons don’t move but build up in huge numbers. That’s static electricity and with this kit, you’ll discover more about it using your homemade Static Bottle. Moving electrons travel through conductors and are stopped by insulators and the Energy Stick identifies one from the other. The Energy Stick also tells when a circuit is complete when multiple liquids are connected by electron bridges. There are a lot of challenges to take on and discoveries to make when electrons are involved!
Create an unforgettable learning experience for both you and your child
This STEM Science Kit includes all the materials you need to conduct all 6 experiments, suggestions for take-it-further activities and challenges for 1-4 children per kit. You’ll also receive a colored activity guide. The young scientist guide has step-by-step instructions for each lab, along with questions, and more challenges.
What does it teach?
This kit presents the foundation kids need to get a better idea of just what electrons – electricity – really are and how to control them whether they’re stationary or moving. Everyday experiences with static charges like uncooperative hair, a blue spark from a door knob, and sparkles between a sheet and a blanket start to make sense because of a balloon, a plastic bottle, and Styrofoam beads.
