This Alnico Science Kit is perfect for conducting magnet experiments and exploration! A variety of alnico magnets, iron filings and steel shapes offer endless opportunities for discovering the science of magnets. The great quality aluminum nickel and cobalt magnets are great for all science projects. The kit includes both a 1 inch and 2 inch horseshoe magnet, a bar magnet, vial of steel shapes and a vial of versatile iron filings. Try this!Place your Alnico Bar Magnet under a sheet of paper. Sprinkle a small amount of iron filings onto the paper and tap gently. The iron filings will have the greatest concentration around the strongest part of the magnet. Replace your bar magnet with one of your horseshoe magnets; is the concentration of iron filings different? Or this - Alnico Horseshoe Magnets can lift three times more than a bar magnet of the same size and weight. The bar magnet and small horseshoe in your kit are about the same size and weight. Using steel shapes or paperclips, test how much each of your magnes will pick up. Which magnet picked up more material? A great magnet kit for the classroom, or a great kit when your child has a science project due!
Warning: Use caution near computers, magnetic media and electronic equipment as magnets can cause damage or malfunction.
