Help your students become magnet “experts.” In this hands-on introductory kit, students will experiment with bar magnets to visibly see why magnets “stick” to certain objects but not others. They will test magnetic polarity and determine what types of materials are magnetic and which are not. Lastly, students sprinkle iron filings over the magnets to clearly display the invisible magnetic fields that surround all magnets. They will visibly see how the magnetic fields are bent when two magnetic north poles repel and when north and south poles attract. Includes detailed laboratory instructions and background information.
Super Value Kit is complete for 8 student groups. All materials are reusable.
