At Technopolis you don't need any hair gel or hairspray, just... electricity!

How is that possible?

The Van de Graaff generator consists of an aluminium globe and a hollow cylinder. There is a nylon drive belt in the cylinder that attracts electrons, resulting in a negative charge. When you come into contact with the globe, you also receive a negative charge, making your hair stand up on your head.

Be sure to have someone snap a photo, as the result will be spectacular!
