Almost everyone has played with magnets and felt the power of their force. Although you cannot see magnetic fields, you can see their effects. Are magnetic fields limited to magnets? In this program, students investigate through several hands-on activities how magnetic fields are related to electric currents. Students will construct devices using magnetic fields to produce electricity and use electricity to produce magnetic fields.


Limited grant funds are available to qualifying schools. Please call for details.

This program supports Colorado Model Content Standards Science: 1, 2.2; Math: 3, 6
