For their final project, Physics M students were asked to demonstrate their understanding of static electricity as part of the Great Foxcroft Magic Physics Show! Using their knowledge of physics, students were asked to make a video demonstrating a static electricity magic trick then explain to the viewers both how to do the trick at home as well as the physics behind it. The videos were then shared with Banneker Elementary students so that they could try the tricks at home!
The completed static electricity video projects are linked below.
