What kinds of cereal can you make dance with a balloon?
Here's how kids have voted so far:
25% corn flakes
55% crisped rice
How's it work?
Rubbing a balloon against your hair gives the balloon a static electric charge. When you bring the balloon near the cereal, the charge attracts electric charges that are in the cereal. The balloon's charge is said to be opposite to that present in the cereal, and opposites attract.

When I rubbed the balloon in my hair, I could get krispy rice cereal to jump up and stick to the balloon!
