Day 129: What is an Electromagnet?

image

Conceptual Physics: Students constructed electromagnets using batteries, magnet wire, clip leads, and nails. They looked to see how it interacted with a compass and investigated ways to make their electromagnets stronger.

College-Prep Physics: Spent the first part of the block getting students to join the class blog (see yesterday’s post). In the second half, students begin research/work into creating a scale model showing the sizes/distances between objects in the universe.
