The Kid Should See This

The Electric Sausage: A static electricity demonstration

Perhaps you’ve experimented with static electricity by using a balloon, paper clippings, your hair, a pencil, a plastic bag, or a Van de Graaff Generator… but have you ever used a sausage to see static electricity in action?

From Storycog and the National STEM Centre, watch as Michael de Podesta demonstrates static electricity and charge with an everyday object that we don’t usually associate with electricity. Have a hot dog in the fridge, some thread, and a balloon? Try this simple experiment at home or at school.
