Magnetic magic

Day two of Science Week and in Class 3 it was a chance to see what magnets could do. The theme of Science Week is 'change' and we wanted to find out how a magnetic field could change the movements of other magnets. We experimented with paper clips first to find out how strong the magnetic field was and then built a pyramid to suspend a ring magnet. We used other magnets to try to change the ring magnet's movement, including making it spin around! The more magnets you used, the more interesting the effects. It was quite fun to make 'hovering' paper clip too!
