Description
Can you make a magnetic field that's stronger than Earth's? Sure you can! Compasses allow us to observe the direction of a magnetic field just like the Earth’s magnetic field. During this camp, campers will create a magnetic field that is stronger than Earth's field by using electric currents. In doing so, the compass needles will orient itself parallel to the new field! Additionally, students will learn how to make series and parallel circuits, and practice using real wiring, switches, and lights! Students will first model the circuits using Snap Circuit kits, then create their circuits using real work materials.
