Product Description

By: The Flinn Staff

Explore the captivating world of magnetism with this all-in-one kit!

• Students learn about the nature of magnets by classifying materials as magnetic or nonmagnetic, and by feeling the attractive and repulsive forces produced between two magnets.
• Then they will use iron filings to actually see and plot the invisible magnetic field lines that surround all magnetic material.
• By building an electromagnet, students bridge the world between electricity and magnetism.
• Students continue their study of electromagnetism by moving magnets through coils of wire to generate their own electricity, and finally apply this new knowledge to build a working DC motor!

This complete “activity stations” lab kit is excellent for either introductory or advanced-level classes. Easy-to-set-up lab stations allow different student groups to work independently to examine a specific aspect of magnetism. Once one activity is complete, students move on to the next lab station. Detailed instructions and Teacher Notes are provided.
Super Value Kit is complete for one station of each lab activity. All materials are reusable!
