My friend and i like building projectiles out of anything in the house.. but the parents do not support our ingenuity, so its kind of hard to get some of the parts we need. Is there anything in the house i could use to make a spark that would be in the house, or something i could use from my electronics class? I have pretty much any component readily available to me, so I can use something from there. (Piezo?) If not, is there any other type of really cool projectile launcher that we could easily make, from something electronic or something in the house?

yes there is you could used a aluminum foil,..press it on the TV's screen with tape then tape a wire to the edge of the foil(or every where you want)get a smaller peice of wire curl it with the end part of the wire so it jumps to the other wirethen do the other processes,..i used this in the H-bomb project or how about using a VDG,or a battery connected in series with a coil then when you disconnect the wire it make a good spark(simon taught me)
