## Shocking Storage

by Hope Hahn //at grade

The big project is the construction of a Leyden jar; you can build these any size you want, and the larger the bigger the spark! Obviously, dealing with a large charged leyden jar should only be attempted with a full understanding of electricity and experience. But on a small scale like we have created you are fine!
