|Then the kids magnetize a sewing needle and made a compass.|
|Lastly we attempted to make our own generator with magnets. We struggled with this one, I must say, but we did get this to work, sort of;)....there is always one experiment that looks good on paper but hard to do in your home:)!|
|My friend knew about this rule (I did not) and it is a great way to remember which way the electrical currents flow when using a magnet.|
We are hoping to do one more week of learning about magnets and electricity by creating our own robots!
