This kit is designed for kids to investigate magnets and magnetism through five engaging experiments and five in-depth special projects. The exciting final project is to build and operate a magnetically levitated train car! All the harder-to-find materials are included: 27 magnets, a compass, iron filings, a 36-page magnetic levitation project booklet, and more. Find out about equilibrium, gravity, and magnetic fields. You provide some common household items.
Activities include floating magnets, balancing gravity and magnetism, and building magnetic pendulums.
