Description

This presentation uses exciting demonstrations to help younger students explore the properties of electricity and magnetism and learn how the two are related. Volunteers hold magnets so powerful that their like poles cannot be pushed together, and they test a variety of metals for magnetism, resulting in some unexpected surprises! Students will even see how magnetism and electricity can create flashes of indoor lightning.
