Discharge Sphere: Use discharge sphere to show dielectric breakdown and create sparks
Styrofoam Peanuts: Set the metal ring atop the generator and turn it on. Hold the discharge
wand to the generator and place the pie pan full of peanuts on the ring. Remove
the wand and the peanuts will fly off.
String "Hair": Stick the wig to the wax atop the generator. Turn it on and see the hairs stand
on end. Loosen the wig with the plastic rod and watch it fly away. The wig can be
replaced with a long-haired student standing on an insulated surface, provided
someone is willing to participate.
Lightning Rod: Remove the needle from the generator base and stick it in the wax atop the
generator. Note that sparks can no longer be made with the discharge wand.
