It may shock you to know, today is Static Electricity Day. Static electricity is produced when the positive and negative charges of an atom are out of balance. We’ve all experienced static electricity, whether we were grabbing a door handle or rubbing our feet across carpet to shock our siblings.

You can avoid static electricity in the winter by using humidifiers in your home to put moisture back into the air, moisturizing your skin before getting dressed, or wearing synthetic fibres.

Celebrate Static Electricity Day by learning more about what causes static electricity and conducting experiments like rubbing a balloon on your hair to make it stand on end.
