Product Details

Gravitational versus magnetic force—which is stronger? With this kit, students perform hands-on experiments using the teacher-designed magnetic levitation device. Students will determine the relationship between force and the distance between two objects. Students follow the engaging lab investigations or explore and design their own experiments. Kit includes three assembled magnetic levitation devices (as pictured), 300 paper clip masses, reproducible student instructions and complete teaching information.

Super Value Kit is complete for three student groups. All materials are reusable.


Materials Included in Kit: 
Magnetic levitation device, 3
Paper clips, 300
