  1. Make Your Own DIY Magnetic Ink

    Make Your Own DIY Magnetic Ink
    Beat the out-of-school boredom with a summer science project using magnets that will keep your kids occupied while promoting valuable learning opportunities. When you think of common uses for magnets, what comes to mind? Many immediately gravitate towards the photo magnets hanging on their fridge, jewelry clasps, cabinet doors, etc. Magnets, however, offer a nearly unlimited variety of applications, both fun and functional.  Continue reading →
  2. Magnetic Science Fair Projects, Part 3: Evaluating Magnetism in Different Liquids

    Magnetic Science Fair Projects, Part 3: Evaluating Magnetism in Different Liquids
    Today we’re serving up the final project in our science fair series — it’s all about magnets and viscosity. Viscosity is the thickness of a liquid and its resistance to flowing. It relates to the size and shape of the particles that make up the liquid and that attraction between them. Low viscosity liquids flow quickly, and high viscosity liquids flow slowly.  Viscosity can also impact an object’s magnetism, so in this project, we’re looking at how different liquids impact magnets. It’s perfect for an age range from Kindergarten to 6th grade. As always, here’s your friendly reminder to always handle magnets with care. Refer to our safety tips for more information.  Continue reading →
  3. Magnetic Science Fair Projects, Part 2: Measuring Iron in Cereal

    Magnetic Science Fair Projects, Part 2: Measuring Iron in Cereal
    Welcome to part two of our science fair series — Today, we’re walking you through the magnetic breakfast project, where we’ll measure the amount of iron found in different cereals.  Our bodies need iron; it’s an essential mineral used to make hemoglobin, which carries oxygen from the lungs to the rest of the body. An iron deficiency will lead to low energy, shortness of breath, dizziness, weight loss, and low mood. If the deficiency continues, we could develop iron deficiency anemia. Fortunately, most of us are able to get enough iron from the foods we eat. Continue reading →
  4. Magnetic Science Fair Projects, Part 1: How Permanent Magnet Strength Varies with Temperature

    Magnetic Science Fair Projects, Part 1: How Permanent Magnet Strength Varies with Temperature
    Has your kid been brainstorming ideas for their next science fair or school project? If you want to help them get a little more creative than a paper mache volcano (no judgment; we love a good volcano as much as the next person!), then consider suggesting a magnet implementation for the next project. Not only do magnets make for fun and exciting scientific displays, but they’re also extremely applicable to day-to-day life. It’s a great way for kids to learn and present all the ways that magnets are used in practical and important ways. This is part one of a three-part series in which we’ll share specific ideas for magnetic science fair projects, including a list of materials and a step-by-step guide.  Remember, always handle magnets with care. Refer to our safety tips for more information.  Continue reading →
