Discover how Earth behaves like one giant magnet, and how we use a compass to take advantage of this phenomenon to determine which way is north. Conduct a series of experiments to learn first hand how magnets behave and interact under different conditions. Make invisible magnetic fields visible using iron filings in an enclosed transparent box. Build an electromagnet to learn how electricity relates to magnetism.
After all the fun experiments, have some fun with what you have learned by playing some games with magnets.
The full-color, 48-page manual guides your experiments with illustrated step-by-step instructions.
This science experiment kit contains many magnets of different shapes and sizes, and a variety of other components with which you can explore this classic scientific subject. Experiment to determine which materials are magnetic and which are not.
Learning about magnetic poles and magnetic fields is a perfect activity for science Birthday parties, play time with friends or a fun and educational independent activity.
