Make your own speaker with a magnet, wire, and paper cup! If you have a radio with a headphone plug and an old pair of headphones, this is a great tinkering activity.
Make your own simple speaker so you can listen to your favorite radio station. Just wind a coil, attach it to a piece of cardboard or Styrofoam, hold a magnet nearby, and listen.
In this activity, learners will create a speaker using a paper cup, magnet, and enameled wire. Also included in this activity is a Mr.
In this design challenge activity, learners invent a pinball-like game where a kick stick hits a ping pong ball into a target that buzzes.
Learners build a simple electromagnet, then use this electromagnet to transform a yogurt container into a working speaker. They can connect their speaker to a radio and listen as it transmits sound.
In this activity, learners create a tiny electric, motorized dancer. Learners use the interactions of magnetism and electric current to make a wire spin, while displaying the Lorentz Force in action.
In this activity, learners use a nail and magnet wire to build an electromagnet, which controls the movements of a paper dancer.
In this activity, learners make a 3-D model of magnetic fields by inserting a small, strong magnet into a sphere.
In this activity about electricity and magnetism, learners discover how a doorbell works. A coil of wire with current flowing through it forms an electromagnet that acts similar to a bar magnet.
In this activity best suited as a demonstration, learners observe that when a piece of iron gets too hot, it loses its ability to be magnetized.
In this activity and demonstration about electricity and magnetism, learners observe how the current generated when one copper coil swings through a magnetic field starts a second coil swinging.
