Create a Magnetic Sculpture! [3K]


"My husband does Science with our kids twice a week. He's having fun with it because he can just get out the box and he's ready to go."

- Mrs. Sheila Johnson, mother of 2 boys, ages 10 & 12

In MAGNETISM you will:

  • FEEL the FORCE with your extra strong ceramic magnets!
  • Use the power of magnetism to CREATE LEVITATION!
  • See a magnet's INVISIBLE FORCE FIELDS with encased iron filings!
  • Pace off a TREASURE MAP with your magnetic compass!
  • Create works of genius with your MAGNETIC SCULPTURE!
  • Make a hand-held MAGNETIC MOTOR!
  • and enjoy many more experiments.
Fun with Magnets
