In science, we have been experimenting with static electricity and magnets. We tested how long it took for the electric charges to "leak" from the surface of the balloon after sticking it to the board. Surprisingly, the balloon remained stuck to the board for hours after we left school.
We also "bent" water with a static electrically charged balloon. Did you know that if you rub a balloon against your hair or a piece of wool and then held it close to a running faucet that the water will be attracted to the balloon?
