    Students use the Engineering Design Process to problem solve as they build electromagnets. Inquiry based investigations explorecore materials, core thickness, number of wraps per coil, magnetic field, electrical charge, and heat energy. Lessons culminatein a design the strongest electromagnet competition. Includes an extensive instructor’s manual with lesson plans, background information, reproducible stepwise student instructions, worksheets, complete answer keys, and all materials required for investigation. Allow four thirty-minute lab times for conducting experiments.


    Class Kit is designed for 24 students working in groups of four. Batteries included.
