Event description

Description

This workshop is set in a historical context but students will improve their understanding of how magnetism and electricity are linked and the important electromagnetic principles which drive our modern world.

Following a practical reminder of basic magnetic principles, students will see how liquids can be magnetised. After making an electromagnet and a demonstration of Faraday’s original electric motor they will build a simple battery powered motor that uses similar principles. Finally the students will be challenged to build a working d.c. motor.

Please note: This workshop is strictly for 13–15 year-olds only. This workshop will include a 30 minute unsupervised lunch break. Discounted tickets are available to Ri Members. Find out more about how to join.

Refunds can only be issued for tickets cancelled at least two weeks (fourteen calendar days) in advance of the event date. Please note that this supersedes our normal event terms and conditions.
