Van de Graaff Generators

Van de Graaffs are the perfect tool for transforming mechanical energy into electrical energy. They also are a really useful tool for understanding induction and applying Gauss' law to conductors - and for thinking about electrostatic discharge and ionization of air. Beyond this, they're simultaneously hands-on and hair-raising! We offer both hand driven and electric motor driven Van de Graaff generators as well as accessories and spare parts to keep your generator arcing crisply for generations of students.
