Safety:Before conducting the lab, discuss any safety precautions that are specific to your science laboratory or classroom. Students should wear eye protection because wind rotor components may separate during testing. Remind students that they should never touch any bare wires in an electric circuit with a current. Exercise caution working with neodymium magnets—they are very powerful, and will snap together easily. Wear gloves to protect your fingers during the preparation. The magnets are fragile and may shatter if dropped or if they hit another object too hard. Keep magnets away from electronic devices especially computers. Remind students to wash hands thoroughly with soap and water before leaving the laboratory.
