Super Science Lab Report

Hello fellow scientists!  This month in Super Science Lab, we did magnet experiments!  We made our own compass, practiced a floating paper clip magic trick, and made a magnet picture frame!

In case you missed it, here is the take home experiment that was passed out at the class:

Experiment:  Will it stick?

Materials

  • A magnet
  • 20 items to test
  • A chart
  1. On your chart, list the 20 items that you will test.   Think of items that you can find around your house.
  2.  Go around the house and find the items that you have listed.
  3.  See if your magnet will stick to the item.
  4. If the item sticks, put the letter X in the YES column.  If the item does not stick, put the letter X in the NO column.

Overview:
Magnets will only stick to items that contain a fair amount of Iron, Steel, or Nickel.  Many metals, such as aluminum, are not magnetic.  A more powerful magnet is more likely to stick to an item that contains a smaller amount of magnetic metal.

Next month make sure to register for Frosty Investigations on February 25th at 1:30 pm or 3:00 pm.  Registration opens on February 11th at 9:00 am.  Please have your library card ready.   I will be on maternity leave and Mrs. Andreea will be hosting this program.  The program should be a lot of fun with Mrs. Andreea so be sure to check it out!  See you all in a few months!
