Van de Graaff Bench


A Van de Graaff generator is mounted to charge an isolated, hanging bench. Automatically, everyone who sits on the bench (analogous to laying a hand on the toroid of a classic VdG) is electrically charged. Discovering the electrical field is lots of fun, like a game! As if being cast by a magic spell, confetti jumps around in a dazzling eruption. The exhibit is staged with an entry and exit. It is advisable to have an appliance enabling a person’s harmless, electric discharge.
