Picture of The Antenna experiment.
We are going to test the feasability of getting electricity from the atmosphere. We will use several kinds of antennas to put electricity to work. Just a simple dipole and unipolar antennas.. This is  intended this to be just a prototype for a much larger unit you would like to build. The antennas are meant for indoor use so that wet weather will not be a factor in preventing the experments in being completed.  Ages 10 and up.

Objective(s):

To teach that radio wavet can be captured create electricity.

To teach a basis alternating and direct current.

To educate that we can use natures own power instead of fossil fuel.

To compare student hypotheses with the actual results of the experiment

Step 1: Hypothesis

Picture of Hypothesis
There is enough energy in the atmosphere to capture and put to work.
