One of the interesting facts we read about bees, this week, is that the little hairs on their bodies build up a static electric charge, that attracts pollen to them, as they fly over, and land on flowers.
That sounded like something we needed to try out for ourselves. C (age 8) took a balloon outside, rubbed it on her head (to produce a static charge), and then passed it over a dandelion (coming close to the flower, but not touching it).
And, sure enough...
I don't know about you, but we thought it was pretty cool.
