Just in time for Valentine's Day: opposites attract, but two negatively charged objects repel one another. Don't be negative. It's repulsive! But that's not science! 

science  balloon
Grade 5 was testing the static charge of objects and how altering the charge of a balloon can make it attract objects like puffed rice, aluminum foil, cotton balls, paper, and other common items. They were looking for common properties among the objects that were easily attracted to the balloons

They charged a strip of plastic cut from a shopping bag and gave it a static charge with a piece of wool fabric. They charged a balloon the same way. The goal was to create a hovering halo above the negatively charged balloon with the negatively charged strip of plastic. It worked, but only for a short time! It was hard to keep the hovering halo aloft. It kept wanting to stick to their sweaters and hair!
