Product Description
For a little practice designing controlled experiments, students use batteries, steel nails (I recommend galvanized), copper wire and paper clips to experiment with electromagnets. Students can choose a number of options to change in order to test what increases the strength of the electromagnet, but I would recommend the coils because it's a lot cheaper than buying tons of batteries. (The batteries are short-circuited o they don't last long.)
