The Lightening Rod is the coolest tool in experimenting with open and closed circuits. Completely safe to touch and handle, the Hands On! Lightening Rod features electrodes on each end of its 7.5″ long tube. When these electrodes are touched simultaneously, long-lasting LED lights inside the tube flash and the tube makes a noise. Release one of the electrodes and the flashing lights and noise stop.
