Two static Electricity Demo with balloons and Van de Graff
How does static electricity move objects?
What happens as magnets move farther apart, closer together?
What will happen when the nano iron particles within the ferrofluid come into contact with this magnet magnetic field?
At the conclusion of this program, students should be able to:
Recognize that all magnets produce a magnetic field that attracts or repels objects
Understand that magnets and static electricity both work over a distance,
Differentiate between the force applied within the magnetic field and the build of electrical charges with static electricity
During this program students will:
Recognize and identify common natural and man made magnets
Communicate the differences between electromagnets and permanent magnets
Create electromagnet and compass
Build a device to design and test their own magnetic experiment
3-PS2-3: Ask questions to determine cause and effect relationships of electric or magnetic interactions between two objects not in contact with each other.
3-PS2-4: Define a simple design problem that can be solved by applying scientific ideas about magnets.
MS-PS2-3: Ask questions about data to determine the factors that affect the strength of electric and magnetic forces.
MS-PS2-5: Conduct an investigation and evaluate the experimental design to provide evidence that fields exist between objects exerting forces on each other even though the objects are not in contact.
