Step-by-step description of making a Van de Graaff generator built using parts from around the house such as a Coke can and rubber bands. I also show how to test it using an electroscope.

For Part 2 of How to Make a Van de Graaff Generator, including more getting 20% better performance, rollers, grounding, and using batteries see:

Some more construction ideas are in my "Van de Graaff Faraday Cage Science Experiment" video here:
