Conduct more than 60 electrifying experiments with circuits and magnetic contraptions to learn about electricity and magnetism, and how these two fundamental properties are closely related. Children eight and up can safely and easily experiment with electric current and magnetic fields using the colorful snap-together blocks and components in this hands-on kit.
Build series and parallel circuits to light up a light bulb. Experiment with push buttons and on-off switches. Assemble circuits that include a spinning motor, two switches, and up to three light bulbs.
Conduct tests to see which materials are magnetic. Learn about the force of magnetism and magnetic poles. Magnetize a metal. Use iron filings to make invisible magnetic fields visible. Investigate magnetic force and direction with a magnetic pendulum device. Learn how a compass works and about Earth’s magnetic fields. Conduct a series of experiments with a sturdy electromagnet.
Finally, put everything you have learned to good use by constructing a loudspeaker, an electromagnetic relay switch, and a morse code telegraph key.
The components are specially designed to make learning fun and accessible. The electrical blocks fit together with simple plug-and-socket connectors. Because the blocks are brightly colored and have unique shapes, it is easy to follow the assembly diagrams to construct functional devices.
The 64-page, full-color experiment manual guides you through experiments with easy-to-follow diagrams.

Includes everything you'll need to show that electricity can act very much like a magnet. One large nail, one five-foot piece and one 1 1/4-foot piece of plastic insulated wire with end connectors, one knife-edge switch, two screws, one 3" x 4" x 1" wooden block and complete instructions. Battery not included.
This kit is designed for high school students to learn the principles and applications of electromagnets. It includes two coils on plastic spools, a U shape iron core, a straight iron core, two magnetic compasses with stands, and a pair of wires. Students can build a bar-shaped and a U -shaped electromagnet which they power with a 6V battery (not included) or DC power supply (not included), to determine the magnitude and polarity of electromagnetic forces. An activity guide and a plastic storage case are included. Shipping weight: 7.3 Oz., dimensions: 4.5" x 4.5" x 1.5".
