Families: Electricity demo at library in Sudden Valley

Learn about static electricity — that little zap you get when you walk across a carpet and touch a doorknob — during a presentation in Sudden Valley with Spark Museum of Electrical Invention staff on Saturday, Sept. 12.

Spark’s experts will have items for children to examine, will demonstrate static machines, and will help people make a “versorium,” the first measuring device for electricity, they can keep. They also have a Van De Graaff machine, which generates static current and can make your hair stand on end.

The event is from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Sept. 12, at the South Whatcom Library in the Sudden Valley Adult Center, 10 Barnview Court, inside Sudden Valley Gate 2. Details: see wcls.org or call 360-305-3600.
