Electricity & Magnetism

Learn about electric currents, circuits, and fields, plus magnetism, through a variety of experiences.

Electricity BenchElectricity Bench
Explore electricity at the AC and DC stations.

Magnetic MotionMagnetic Motion
Sometimes a relatively simple combination of forces can create a complex series of motions. Gravity pulls on the pendulum. At the same time, the base magnets push on the magnet attached to the end of the pendulum.

Magnetic AttractionMagnetic Attraction
Magnetism is a force that acts at a distance and is caused by a magnetic field. This force strongly attracts ferromagnetic materials such as iron, nickel and cobalt.
