This week you will find out what an electromagnet is and how it works. You will make a simple electromagnet like the one described on this site. You will then design an experiment to investigate some factor affecting the strength of an electromagnet. Carry out your experiment, record data, process and present the data, write a conclusion and evaluate. You need to read the rubrics carefully and make sure you are aiming for the “exemplary” column in all cases. Good luck and enjoy!
