Static Electricity and the Balloon

Hi, I am Jared, and welcome to Fun Science Demonstrations for Young Learners. What is more fun than a balloon, huh? And we have all been there. How many of you have ever scrubbed a balloon on your hair and you felt this kinda weird force, and you are trying to hang it on a […]

Exploring Static Electricity

Hi I am Jared welcome to Fun Science Demos. Check this out. How did I do that? What was going on there? Was it magic? No it was science. What you did not see me do is rub this straw on this fur and charge it up? Well what do I mean when I say […]

Heat Expands a Metal Rod

Hi, I am Jared, and welcome to our YouTube channel Fun Science Demonstrations. The big idea here is that things expand, they get bigger when you heat them up. It does not matter if it is a solid, if it is a liquid, if it is a gas; they will expand, they will get bigger, […]

What Conducts Electricity?

Hi, I am Jared, and welcome to Fun Science Demonstrations for Young Learners. A little message, Morse code, are you getting it? Our big idea today is that electricity needs a path to follow and sometimes that path is easy to follow, and sometimes it is not so easy. Some things conduct electricity and some […]

Six Activities with Static Electricity

We’re going to talk a little bit about static, so I need a couple volunteers to come up Volunteers who do not mind me messing up their hair so I’m definitely going to mess up your hair. These balloons here… Our little balloon Puffy stuck to the wall. Puffy is stuck to the wall because […]

Static Electricity Simulation

Hello, I am Jared, welcome to Fun Science Demos. Today we are going to be taking a look at a really neat simulation that Carl Wieman and his team at PhET put together and created. PhET is a great website for science and math education and we have linked right into the simulation in our […]
