Magnetism is a "primal force". There are ferrous stones that are naturally magnetic, but you can't tell by looking at them. With the help of the materials in this experimental kit, you can playfully experience the mysterious magnetic forces.
You can learn about the forces of iron with the strong magnet: Which materials stick? How long does the nail chain become? Attraction and repulsion also lead to very different reactions in the magnetic pendulum. With iron filings, a compass and a magnetic ship, you can visualise the course of the magnetic field lines.
Contents: 1 bar magnet, 3 steel needles, 2 steel balls, 1 transparent box with iron filings, 10m insulated copper wire, 1 soft iron core, 2 cardboard tubes, 1 cut-out car, 1 small clothes peg, 1 bag of nails
Experiment set from 10 years
CAUTION: Contains magnets and iron parts that can be swallowed. Swallowed parts that attract each other can cause serious injuries in the intestines. If swallowed, consult a doctor immediately.
