In this module, students construct an electromagnet, which is one of the essential parts of many electronic devices, like motors, loudspeakers, and hard drives. Students then explore whether an electromagnet’s strength changes with the number of turns in the magnet’s coil. Students also measure the magnet’s strength by counting the number of objects the electromagnet can lift. Finally, students design an electromagnetic crane to separate steel from junk.
