This is a free internet-based module for high school physics or physical science on the topic of electrostatics. The lesson begins with a short video clip of a car catching on fire during refueling. The driving question of the unit is: what caused the fire and how can we use a knowledge of electrostatics to prevent these accidents? The module provides students with modeling experience, digital note-taking, and guided investigation. It blends hands-on labs with computer simulations and interactive tutorials.

Topic: "Static" Electricity
Unit Title: Electric Charge

An exceptional internet-based module that blends computer modeling with traditional hands-on labs. The introductory video is guaranteed to "spark" attention: a car catches on fire during refueling. The driving questions for students to investigate: what caused the fire and how can we use a knowledge of electrostatics to prevent these accidents? (Developed by UC-Berkeley.)
