Dear Jean, this is Tony Klose again.
The science fair at my school was a success!!! Guess what...
I won the first place prize in the seventh grade, and the grand prize over the whole school using the Lifter1 !!! I am so happy and I wanted to thank you for everything.
Thanks SO much!!!
This is Tony Klose again. I made 6 different versions of the Lifter 1 and two of them worked. One works really good and the other justworks a little bit. I have attached some photos of the better one.
It has an upper frame of balsa that is 80mm long and about 1 1/2 mm wide. I cut the balsa from a big strip of it. The tin foil is one long piece that goes all the way around the craft. The positive electrode is really thin copper wire that I took out of a regular cord that plugs into the wall. The TV that I am using is old, but it still gives enough power. I don't know how many Kilo Volts there are though. The vertical sticks are made of thin balsa. It is a small lifter but it is really cool. Im going to use it in my science fair at school. I also don't know what it weighs, but it is very light.
My location is Shawano , Wisconsin. I don' t know what the latitude and longitude lines are though, but it is in north east Wisconsin. Well, good luck. I will inform you of any updates.
