I have searched the threads a bit, but did not find anything relevant. I will be taking my coil to my third grader's school on Wednesday, and was looking for info I could put together in a small handout for their level of understanding. It would need to capture an 8 or 9 year-old's interest (not that the coil won't do enough of that!). Basically, they learn a little about science each week and I am augmenting electricity and lightning.
I have the basic concepts of static electricity and magnetism in mind, but that kind of went over the heads of some of my other daughter's seventh grade class last year. The fluorescent tube went over well, so that's always cool.
To put your minds at ease, I have been at this a while and have safety precautions in place. I am not looking for that kind of input (but, no doubt, we cannot resist on emphasizing safety!).
I think this is my first input to the list, but have been reading it since 2005. I have learned a lot over the years, so please accept this as my thank-you.
