It’s NOT Magic!! It’s Science!!

ZAP! Have you ever been zapped when bouncing on a trampoline? Maybe, when you touched the car door? Or even when you touched a door knob? Well, the Year Ones can now explain why this little electric shock happens! We experimented by ‘charging up’ balloons (rubbing them on our hair) and watching what happened as we moved our hand underneath…….. Guess What!? The balloon followed our hand!! The electrical charge we had built up by rubbing the balloon on our hair was attracted to the electrical charge in our hands. Give it a try at home! It was heaps of fun!

Torquay College acknowledges the Wadawurrung people as the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we live, learn and play and recognise the resilience, strength and pride of all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. We acknowledge the connection to land, waters and cultures of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging throughout Australia.
