Do you know that ordinary objects like toasters, door locks, motors and telephones use electromagnets? By building and exploring with the Electromagnet Kit, your budding scientist or engineer will learn how the electromagnetic field was first discovered. Then, they will build their own electromagnet and investigate how it works, how to change the strength of the magnet and more. Plus, your child can easily expand this lesson for a science fair or exhibit.
The Electromagnet Kit and Activity Guide come directly from our science curriculum. Our teachers have taught this lesson to thousands of students and it is still a favorite today. Students really enjoy this engaging, hand-on experiment and they take pride in the fact that they build an electromagnet themselves.
