I know you probably understand the capacitor by now

But I just really liked these two articles I’m about to point you to.

I was doing research for my new book project…

(which is a book about electronics for kids)

…when I came across them.

1) First of all — what is it that capacitors store?

Is it electrons?

Is it charge?

Is it energy?

This really interesting article explains: http://amasci.com/emotor/cap1.html

2) Second, how can you build your own capacitor at home?

Like this: http://hackaday.com/2011/05/09/roll-your-own-capacitors/

Here’s my guide that shows you how to get started building stuff (like blinking lights or an electronic instrument):
