  1. 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 →

  6. St. Patrick's Day Science Experiment

    St. Patrick's Day Science Experiment
    St. Patrick’s Day is usually associated with lucky clovers, leprechauns, and gold at the end of rainbows. Unfortunately, gold is not magnetic so it’s more difficult to find even when using a rainbow as a map. What metals are magnetic? Here’s a fun St. Patrick’s Day-themed science experiment you can try to determine what materials have magnetic properties and how they move through different density’s when a magnetic field is applied: Continue reading →
  7. 4 Mesmerizing Magnet Videos

    4 Mesmerizing Magnet Videos
    In general, it can be said that videos on the Internet have a certain “magnetic” quality to them, whether you’re watching them to learn new things, to check out the latest Beyoncé music video, or even just to procrastinate. But, they can become even more mesmerizing with the presence of actual magnets.   We’ve rounded up 4 of the most mesmerizing magnet videos we could find online...and one bonus one that is only technically on topic, but that you’ll enjoy all the same. Check them out: Continue reading →
  8. DIY Diamagnetism Experiment

    DIY Diamagnetism Experiment
    Diamagnetism is a magnetic property first discovered in 1778 by Dutch scientist Sebald Justinus Brugmans. He discovered the property while using bismuth and antimony and realized they were repelled by magnetic fields. It wasn’t until 1845 that English scientist Michael Faraday named the property diamagnetism while studying elements and compounds that exhibited negative magnetism, meaning they were pushing away from the magnet. In layman's terms, diamagnetism is a property that every element possesses, which causes a weak repulsion from a magnetic field. In contrast, some elements also possess ferromagnetism and paramagnetism, which causes them to be strongly attracted or repulsed by the magnetic field. To show diamagnetism, you can use a DIY magnet experiment with a common everyday food, grapes, to show small repulsion when exposed to a strong rare earth magnet. This experiment will only work with neodymium magnets because of the strong magnetic field they produce.     Continue reading →
