We then discussed solar energy and how important shadow lengths are when telling time.
In the afternoon we began our exploration of magnetism and electricity. we created magnetic fields.
We even reproduced the fermi lab symbol; the quadrupole. Students identified materials that interact with magnets and what magnets can be made from different materials. They also have varying strengths. We learned that all metals are not attracted to magnets and that Canadian nickels change their metal content over the past 40 years. From there we moved onto learning about electricity. We made a human circuit and then made our own circuits with wires and aluminum foil. The push of electrons is called voltage and that volts have an additive property.
