Bad Hair Day?

(courtesy of Discovery Education)

 

What is up with this lady’s hair? (Hint: it is not a fan or wind of any kind.) Find out today when we live stream from the Boston Museum of Science, where we’ll look at exhibits like the Van de Graaff generator and get a sneak peek into the Hall of Human Life.

 

 

The live stream starts at 1:00pm EST and is instantly archived on our live stream channel, in case you miss it.

You can submit questions in advance and see if you get an answer live during the event.

    I think that it is the static in the sky and lighting is about to strike her. ( PS. I don’t literally mean it just for the experiment on Bad Hair Day)

      i think it is the static electricity conducted from the metal orb at the museum. by touching it, it makes her hair stick up. it is quite ELECTRIFYING!!!!

    I think it’s the ball that has the purple thingy electricity inside. I know that sounds crazy. I forgot the name of the thing that when you touch it makes your hair stand up.

      well, the ballon would have to have been rubbed very long and the ballon must be close enough to keep the static energy link. ;D

    this happens with static electricity if you have long hair, but with short hair the item with electricity with it will stck to you without falling :D

    • Logan October 24, 2013, 11:19 pm

      Yeah thats true because the more hair, the more positive adams and that means more negative adams would be able to combine to create a link of static electricity.

    Hi Idaearyah. I’m smiling because you are thinking about whether or not it is nice to post this. Rest assured, this was a volunteer in a science lab who knows her hair is a little wacky because of the electricity flying through it. We will never make fun of people on this site and I’m glad you are watching out for rude behavior!
