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? Why do we say Earth has a magnetic field, and where does it come from?
In this class, students will break down these questions and learn all about magnets and feel confident in answering all the questions above.
This is a great class for students as revision of the topic or for those studying it for the first time.
