    Pith Ball Electroscope

    Easier to set up and demonstrate than normal flask electroscopes. Very light, very compact and works very well. I even made several sets of strings with various material standing in for the pith balls to test those different materials. All in all a great learning tool!

    Larger than most pith balls I've seen online for sale, plus a good solid stand.
