To perform the Electric Fleas science project all you need to have is a long playing record, a glass, woolen cloth and silver paper balls. First of all take the long playing record and rub it with a woolen cloth for a while. Now immediately place this record over a glass and then toss small silver paper balls on it. Soon you will be amazed to see that the silver paper balls jump from one another in a very amusing manner. If you try to bring these paper balls on the record close to each other with your finger, they will again jump away from each other. This happens because when the record is rubbed with a woolen cloth the electricity is produced and when the paper balls are tossed over this record, the electric charged gets transferred to these balls and are repelled, but soon they can be seen being attracted to the oppositely charged fields. The balls also repel other balls with same charge.
