Using a series of hands-on experiments, students investigate the properties of magnets and the magnetic properties of electric currents. Students will also experience the historical development of our understanding of magnets.
Student activities include:
electromagnets and conducting experiments to
test their strength.
Constructing and operating 2 types of
rudimentary electric motors to illustrate one of
the major applications of electromagnetism.
Disassembling, experimenting with, and
rebuilding a commercial electric motor to see
how its components correspond with those of the
motors students constructed.
