A magnet is an object or material that can produce a magnetic field of its own. That magnetic field is responsible for the property of magnets to attract or repel other magnets, and pull objects that are ferromagnetic, l... More »

A magnet is made of any of a group of metals called ferromagnetic metals. Ferromagnetic metals contain many small magnetic fields called domains. In their natural state, the magnetic fields of these domains point in diff... More »

Testing different magnets to determine their strength or building a linear accelerator with magnets are some science projects using magnets that are appropriate for children. Experiments such as these are available on Ho... More »

The uses of magnets in everyday life include in the household, credit cards, electronics, industrial work, medical equipment and jewelry. In different industrial fields, magnets are useful as magnetic sweepers or sorters... More »

All magnets have both a north and a south pole, which causes them to either repel or attract one another depending on how the two poles are lined up. If the north pole of one magnet meets the south pole of another, the t... More »

To make a magnetic levitation car, first carve a polystyrene block into the shape of a car and glue magnets on the bottom with the negative side facing down, then create the track by gluing magnets with the negative side... More »
