In this workshop students will improve their understanding of how magnetism and electricity are linked by looking at the history of electromagnetism and discovering the important electromagnetic principles which drive our modern world.
Following a practical reminder of basic magnetic principles, students will see how liquids can be magnetised. After making an electromagnet and a demonstration of Faraday’s original electric motor, they will build a simple battery powered motor that uses similar principles. Finally the students will be challenged to build a working DC motor.
This workshop is strictly for 13 – 15 year olds only. Please note this workshop will include a 30 minute unsupervised lunch break. Students should bring their own lunch and a drink.
