Magnets can exert forces on objects at a distance, due to the magnetic field that is present around them. But what affects this magnetic field? Why are some materials affected by magnets, yet some are not? How can we prove there is an invisible force field around a magnet? In this class, students will break down these questions and learn all about magnets. This class is suitable for all ages and is great to help build a solid foundation for future classes and exams.
