Piezoelectricity Demo

This lesson plan from the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry explores the history of piezoelectricity, with hands-on examples of how it's used, models of why it happens, and how it is applied in nanotechnology. Pressing on the piezoelectric buzzer in the background causes a current to flow and the neon bulb in the foreground to glow.
