This electric kit helps the child learn about lightning. It is a version of the Leyden jar, the first device to store electricity. It makes sparks, but it is safe. Run the lightning machine across the TV set to collect and store static electricity. You can also charge the Lightning Machine by other means. Push the spheres close together and watch the sparks fly. The science guide contains a lot of facts and information about electrical energy. This Scientific Explorer Lightning Machine will be a challenging and informative project for the entire summer.
