Dancing Ghost Science Recipe With Static Electricity


“oooooooh”
Oh No! A scary ghost! That must mean it’s super spooky Halloween time and time for a science experiment from the Kitchen Science Cookbook. But I’m going to need a helper! “Me!” Hi Arman, how are you? “Good” Would you like to do a science experiment today? “Yes” Perfect – you will need for this recipe: A tissue, a pen, some scissors, sticky tape and a balloon. OK, first I’m going to need you to draw a
ghost – so here’s a pen. Perfect! That is a very spooky ghost! Now I’m going to use the scissors because
they are sharp and I’m going to cut this shape out. While I’m doing that can you blow this balloon
up for me please? Perfect, OK. Let me tie this for you. I’m going to put you in charge of the balloon
and we are going to take your ghost and put it on the table and then we are going to stick
the base down with some sticky tape here. Now, can you take that balloon and touch the
ghost and see if anything happens. “Nothing”
Nothing, happens, so we are going to need a super secret science ingredient. Do you know what that is? “My hair?” Your hair, OK rub the balloon on your hair
as fast as you can! What you are doing is you are transferring
negatively charged electrons to the balloon and opposites attract so what’s going to happen
hopefully when we bring the balloon and the ghost together – let’s see? Look at that! You can see the negatively charged balloon
is attracting the positively charged ghost and making it dance. What noise do you think this ghost makes? “ooooooooh”
Whoooooh indeed! There you go, Halloween science that you can
do at home with your kids thanks to the Kitchen Science Cookbook.
