Electromagnet

 

 
  Electromagnet Science Kit: $25
Electromagnet Science set is a kit with instructions and material to perform many different experiments related to electromagnets. These materials can also be used for your presentation.
Build a doorbell, telegraph system, even a catapult, using a true electromagnet.


Electromagnet Science Set includes several introductory experiments in magnetism as well as six complete electromagnet projects. Complete projects are:
1-Construct an electromagnet, 2-Construct an electric catapult, 3-Make pictures of magnetic field, 4-Construction of telegraph, 5-Construct a buzzer, 6-Construct a relay.

Electromagnet Science kit includes:

  • Experiment and Project book
  • Compass
  • Coil of magnet wire in spool
  • Neodymium magnet
  • Latch Magnets
  • Plastic coated hookup wire
  • Heavy magnet wire
  • Sand paper
  • Plastic drinking straws
  • 8 Sheet metal pieces
  • 6 disc magnets
  • Small wood screws
  • 4 small nails for securing wires
  • Large common nails
  • Large finishing nail
  • Small finishing nail
  • Small lights with leads
  • Battery holder
  • Iron filings
  • 2 Pre-drilled wood blocks
  • Light emitting diode (LED)

Additional Materials Required: Additional Materials Required for your experiments can be found at home or purchased locally. Some of these material are:

  • Four "D" cell flashlight batteries
  • Philips screw driver
  • String/tread
  • 1 spoon
  • 1 pair of scissors
  • 1 Roll of masking tape

  • 1 US dollar bill
  • 5 US pennies
  • 6 Small paper clips
  • Several Magazines
  • 1 piece of paper (8.5 x 11)
  • one book

Opportunities for Science Fair Projects
Many of the questions asked in the Electromagnet Projects, can serve as the "Problem to be solved" in a science project. In setting up your project, you would first state the problem, then hypothesis, ( a guess as the answer to your problem), next procedure to check the hypothesis, and finally a conclusion that answers the stated problem based on what you actually observe in your research. In addition you may be interested in proposing your own, specific research that will expand on your conclusion.
Since magnets are visually enticing in themselves as they interact with each other, it would be strongly suggested that your presentation include the apparatus you used in your research.
