Answer by A-cronos
Do an electroscope (wait I know it sounds hard but it isn’t).
Take a round metallic box (like a cookie box or something). Paint it on the outside (just to make it look better). Make a hole in one of the sides. Take a Clip and brake it so you have two even parts. Then take play dough and cover the hole with it. Insert each part of the clip into the play dough so that the tips are near each other, but make sure that the parts are touching each other in any place. If this is done correctly the parts of the clip will be seen inside the box. On each part (inside the box) hang a rectangular portion (doesn’t have to be very big) of aluminum foil. Find a silk cloth (or a material that produces static electricity well enough) and a piece of plastic. Rub the plastic against the cloth, then touch the two parts of the clip (simultaneously) that are outside the box. You will see that the two portions of aluminum foil will move creating an inverse V, repealing each other. Hope it helps. If you need more info, e-mail me. Trust me its easy I did it when I was in 6th grade.
