Event description: 

Jump into the static electric party!

See lightning bolts. Do hands-on projects with sticking balloons, electrostatic fleas, and stored up charges that make super sparklers. Get in flow with electric circuits. Measure the electrical current in lemons. Create your own potato clock or lamp. Find your way with magnets. Build a strong electromagnet and explore the amazing properties of magnetic and electric fields. Be surprised by superconductivity and the inner workings of computers. This will be one great electromagnetic event!

Free admission. Open to middle school girls. 100 spots reserved for Pathways Scholars, but students outside the program are encouraged to register at gsi.yale.edu! Snacks and lunch will be served.

The mission of Girls’ Science Investigations (GSI) is to motivate, empower, and interest girls in developing the skills they need to pursue careers in science. This series occurs four times per year, each with its own theme.
