360Science™: Introduction to Electromagnetism

By: The Flinn Staff

360Science™  blends the best of student-engaging digital content with easily adaptable hands-on labs to offer your students a uniquely comprehensive learning experience. 

In this lab experience,
 students explore electromagnets and examine how an electric field from a battery generates a magnetic current through wire. Editable, differentiated instructions range from a time-sensitive prescriptive lab to full open inquiry, and robust online videos and content—including a virtual reality (VR) simulation—help students prepare for and better understand the labs they’re conducting.

360Science™: Introduction to Electromagnetism
Concepts: 
Magnetic properties of current-carrying wires, conservation of energy, electromagnets, magnetic field 
Outcomes: Students are working to prove that electric current can generate a magnetic field and that a magnetic field can be used to generate an electric current. To demonstrate the first statement groups will build their own electromagnet. They will then observe the difference in strength with and without the iron core. For the second statement, students create a magnetic field in one tube covered in magnet wire and see the resulting effect on a compass in another tube wrapped in magnet wire. They should draw the conclusion that the magnetic field created an electric field that carried down the wire to the other tube.
Associated Phenomena: How can heat that is deep underground be used at the surface?

Our 1-year option provides access to all digital content for one year plus lab supplies for a single class of 30 students. Our 3-year option extends access to digital content to three years, with a 30% discount on refill supply kits years 2 and 3.

What is Flinn 360Science™?
We’re introducing a whole new way to teach experiential science! We’ve taken a hard look at science study from all perspectives and, thanks to the feedback of thousands of teachers nationwide, we’ve created a way to make it easier to provide personalized instruction while delivering the kind of lab experiences your students truly need.

Our new and comprehensive learning solutions are designed to bring science to life by giving you all the tools you need to incorporate more (and effective) hands-on learning in your classroom or lab. 360Science allows you to provide your students with the support they need to make real-world connections to key scientific principles and help make those abstract concepts concrete.

Every 360Science lab solves the most common challenges educators face in bringing more hands-on science to their students—from not having enough time to matching the right level of challenge for students’ abilities to providing appropriate background content, safety techniques, assessments and more.

Enable student-driven, blended learning through a unique combination of leveled lab instructions supporting prescriptive, guided- and open-inquiry lab exercises (see PDF resource for specific details) with robust digital content, such as videos and carefully curated Open Educational Resources (OER)—along with virtual reality and simulation exercises. From editable, digital instructions to assessments and alignment with Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), we have everything you need to improve mastery, remove the intimidation factor and foster your students’ natural curiosity.
