Bill Nye The Science Guy Static Electricity Worksheet and Answer Key
The spark is static electricity, a buildup of charged electrons.
Electrons are a part of all atoms, the building blocks of all stuff. All electrons have a negative charge. Negatively charged electrons push away from other negatively charged electrons. Like charges repel each other. When electrons build up in an area, a charge builds up, and it’s just waiting to be released. This buildup of charge is called static electricity.
Watch as Bill teaches with enthusiasm and in a way that gets kids (and adults) excited about science.
