Young scientists run tests to see how magnets and electric currents affect the rules of gravity. See Lenz’s Law in action as a magnet falls through a copper or aluminum tube, creating circular electric currents. These currents create a magnetic field that causes the magnet to fall at a slower speed through the tubes, similar to braking systems on roller coasters. A comprehensive teacher’s guide includes instructions for 5 magnetism experiments and 5 Lenz’s Law projects. Kit includes neodymium and ceramic magnets, along with copper, aluminum, plastic, and vinyl tubes to run experiments. Recommended for Middle School and up.
