Conduct more than 60 electrifying experiments with circuits and magnetic contraptions with this 'Electricity and Magnetism' kit from Thames & Kosmos! Discover how these two fundamental properties are closely related through experiments with electric current and magnetic fields.
Build series and parallel circuits to light up a light bulb.
Experiment with push buttons and on-off switches.
Assemble circuits that include a spinning motor, two switches, and up to three light bulbs.
Conduct tests to see which materials are magnetic.
Learn about the force of magnetism and magnetic poles.
Magnetize a metal.
Use iron fillings to make invisible magnetic fields visible.
Investigate magnetic force and direction with a magnetic pendulum device.
Learn how a compass works and about Earth's magnetic fields.
Conduct a series of experiments with a sturdy electromagnet.
Finally, put everything you have learned to good use by constructing a loudspeaker, an electromagnetic relay switch, and a Morse code telegraph key.
The components are specially designed to make learning fun and accessible. The electrical blocks fit together with simple plug and- socket connectors. Because the blocks are brightly colored and have unique shapes, it is easy to follow the assembly diagrams to construct functional devices.
The 64-page, full-color experiment manual guides you through experiments with easy-to-follow diagrams. Ages 8 & up. 60 Experiments.
