This web site is devoted to magnetism and the
cool experiments you can do with permanent magnets and electro-magnets.
Some of the experiments are very basic - things you've done since third grade. Others are
unique - perhaps you hadn't thought of doing some of
these before, or had difficulty in trying to set them up. Lists of the
materials needed for the demonstrations, directions on how to assemble them,
instructions on how to show them, and notes on how they work are all here for
you. Also shown are several cool magnetic toys you can buy. Of
course, there are also links to useful sites, articles, videos, animations, sources and books on magnets.
The list below is an index into this site to help you quickly find what you are
looking for. In addition, there is a site-search at the beginning and end of this index
for detailed searches of this site.

Wherever you see ,
that means that at the underlined link there is some kind of experiment you can
buy or build which will help you learn about the world of magnetism.
If you are a museum or school interested in
building or purchasing a copy of an exhibit similar to one seen on this web
site, please drop
me a note! I do not have
ready made kits of these.
Do you have any additions or suggestions
for other ideas or experiments that should be mentioned here or linked
here? Let me know what you think. Drop
me a note!
