Magnets and Force Fields

My students need magnets to show that there are forces creating a push or a pull and generating a magnetic force or field.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Can you imagine seeing a magnetic field or force being created before you?

Our middle school is a high-poverty school located in a rural area.

They are wonderful and inquisitive students who welcome new opportunities to discover science in their everyday lives. Our middle school has over 900 students with a large diversity of students.

My Project

Using magnets and magnetic wands, student will experience forces are created as a push or a pull generating a magnetic field or force. Students will recognize characteristics of gravity, electricity, and magnetism as major kinds of forces in nature.

Your donations will bring this concept of magnetic fields and forces to life with our students.

Hands-on activities create a life-long impression demonstrating a concept that would otherwise be difficult to understand.

Grades 6-8
