Magnet Man - Cool Experiments with Magnets Cool Experiments with Magnets This web site is devoted to magnetism and the cool experiments you can do with permanent magnets and electro-magnets. Some of the experiments are very basic - things you've done since third grade. Others are unique - perhaps you hadn't thought of doing some of these before, or had difficulty in trying to set them up. Lists of the materials needed for the demonstrations, directions on how to assemble them, instructions on how to show them, and notes on how they work are all here for you. Also shown are several cool magnetic toys you can buy. Have fun with hands-on experiments! Rick Hoadley(For other cool toys and puzzles, check this out!) Last updated: 26 Feb 2017. , that means that at the underlined link there is some kind of experiment you can buy or build which will help you learn about the world of magnetism. Safety Considerations IMPORTANT! What is attracted to magnets? Electromagnets What is an electromagnet? Who else has cool stuff on magnets?
