I would like to do a demo to show the kids the danger of electricity 
especially as some will be building computers for the school.  I have tried 
attaching a sausage to a power pack but as the highest attainable voltage is 
48V I get a slight sizzle and no smell.  Any ideas for a fun way to highlight 
the dangers?  The kids are aged 14.  Thanks
