Holly Springs Students Get Hair-Raising Lesson on Static Electricity
Posted on 03/07/2024
Fifth-grade Program Challenge Students at Holly Springs Elementary School participated in “Hair-Raising” Hands-On Static Electricity stations recently.

Holly Springs Principal Sherritta Abell said students were "charged" with trying to use their senses of feeling, hearing and seeing to model and demonstrate the effects of static electricity using a balloon.

“Students found that rubbing their balloon on a material such as wool or fleece charged their balloon better,” Abell said. “They were able to pick up tissue paper, cause hair to stand up, stick their balloon to the wall without holding it, and even bend water!”
