(Lively music playing)

Two brains move through a maze, chomping as they go. The brains merge into one large brain.

A banner over the brain reads: Hungry Brain!

A voice says, HUNGRY BRAIN!

A person draws a lightning bolt and lightbulb on a whiteboard.

A narrator says, ELECTRICITY IS USED TO TURN ON LIGHTS, COMPUTERS, OR TELEVISIONS. THE ELECTRICAL CHARGES MOVE ALONG WIRES AND PRODUCE A CURRENT. THERE'S ANOTHER TYPE OF ELECTRICITY CALLED STATIC ELECTRICITY. THE WORD "STATIC" MEANS "THAT DOESN'T MOVE." WITH STATIC ELECTRICITY, ELECTRICAL CHARGES ACCUMULATE ON AN OBJECT AND STAY THERE WITHOUT MOVING. SHOCKING RIGHT?

(Electrical buzzing)

The person draws a child holding a balloon. The child’s hair is pulled towards the balloon.

Text reads: Here’s The Top On Static Electricity

The narrator says, HERE'S THE TOP ON STATIC ELECTRICITY.

The person draws the number 3 with a blue marker.

The narrator says, NUMBER THREE: IT CAN MAKE THE HAIR STAND UP ON YOUR HEAD. IN WINTER, WHEN YOU TAKE OFF YOUR SWEATER, SOMETIMES YOUR HAIR STANDS UP ON YOUR HEAD. IT'S DUE TO STATIC ELECTRICITY.

The person draws a blonde-haired person holding a sweater. The blonde-haired person’s hair stands up.

The narrator continues, SO, HOW DO WE EXPLAIN THIS HAIR-RAISING PHENOMENON?

The person draws an atom.

(Belling dinging)

The narrator says, ALL OBJECTS HAVE ATOMS, WHICH ARE MICROSCOPIC PARTICLES MADE OF ELECTRONS THAT REVOLVE AROUND A NUCLEUS. WHEN TWO OBJECTS RUB TOGETHER, ONE PULLS ELECTRONS OFF THE OTHER. IN WINTER, WHEN WE UNDRESS, OUR HAIR WINS THE BATTLE. IT PULLS ELECTRONS OFF THE SWEATER AND CHARGES UP WITH MOVE ELECTRONS.

(Electrical buzzing)

The narrator continues, THESE ELECTRONS ARE NEGATIVELY CHARGED, AND SAME CHARGES REPEL EACH OTHER. SO, BASICALLY, STRANDS OF HAIR ON OUR HEAD TRY TO GET AWAY FROM ONE ANOTHER. YOU MIGHT END UP WITH A BED HEAD LIKE ALBERT EINSTEIN. GENIUS.

The person draws Albert Einstein with his tongue sticking out.

The person uses a pink marker to draw the number 2.

The narrator says, NUMBER TWO: IT CAN PRODUCE LIGHTNING. LIGHTNING IS NOTHING LESS THAN A BIG ELECTRO-STATIC SHOCK BETWEEN THE CLOUDS AND THE GROUND.

(Thunder)

The person draws storm clouds.

The narrator continues, IT GENERALLY HITS TALL BUILDINGS. FOR EXAMPLE, THE BELL TOWER OF A CHURCH. IF THERE'S AN ACCUMULATION OF ELECTRICAL CHARGES IN THE CLOUDS, ALL OF A SUDDEN... ZAP!

(Thunders)

The person draws lightning from a cloud striking a tree.

The narrator says, ELECTRICITY TRANSFERS IN THE CLOUDS TO THE GROUND. IN THIS CASE, A MUCH LARGER CHARGE THAN WHEN TOUCHING A METAL OBJECT.

(Boing sound)

The drawing shows a child touching a doorknob.

The person uses a black marker to draw the number 1.

The narrator says, NUMBER ONE: IT GIVES ELECTRIC SHOCKS. WHEN OUR FEET RUB ON A CARPET, OUR BODIES ABSORB ELECTRICAL CHARGES. THEN WHEN YOU GO TO TOUCH A METAL OBJECT, YOU MAY GET A SHOCK. OUCHY! BUT WHY? YOU GUESSED IT. STATIC ELECTRICITY. JUST BEFORE OUR HAND TOUCHES THE METAL OBJECT, ELECTRICITY PASSES RAPIDLY BETWEEN OUR SKIN AND THE OBJECT. IT THEN CREATES A SMALL ELECTRIC SHOCK.

(Buzzing sound)

The child is drawn to look annoyed.

The narrator asks, SMALL? ARE KIDDING ME? I'M TOO ZAPPED TO GO ON…
