Electricity and Magnetism ? A Dynamic Duo  
When using a compass to see which way is north, south, east, and west, we are really using a magnet. The little moving pointer in a compass is actually a small magnet! Electricity in a wire can also be used to make a magnet. Students investigate this relationship by setting up a wire and making the magnetism from the electricity in the wire move the magnet in the compass.

Magnets Point the Way  
We use a compass to see which way is north, south, east, and west. When we use a compass we are actually using a magnet. The little moving pointer in a compass is actually a small magnet. The needle lines up and points in a certain direction because Earth itself has magnetism and acts like a magnet too. Students investigate to learn how a compass works.

Metals and Magnetism  
Metals are the only substances that are magnetic. The most,common magnetic metal is iron. Although few products are made of pure iron, a lot of products are made of steel. Since steel has a lot of iron in it, steel is attracted to a magnet. In this activity students investigate a wide range of materials to discover which ones are magnetic and which are not.

Magnetism Through and Through  
Magnets have the ability to attract certain metals like iron and steel. Metal paper clips are made from steel and should be attracted by a magnet. But can a magnet attract a paper clip through a liquid like water or even through a solid? In this activity students investigate some properties of metals and magnetism.

Magnets Coming and Going  
All magnets have two ends or poles. They are called the North pole and the South pole of the magnet. No matter how big or small the magnet is, it always has a north and a south pole. In this activity students make two magnets and see how the poles of one magnet interact with the poles of the other.

Paint a Fresco  
A fresco is a painting made directly on fresh plaster. A chemical change happens as the fresco is being created. As the fresco dries, a chemical in the wet plaster called calcium hydrate combines with a chemical from the air called carbon dioxide. When these chemicals combine, the paint gets stuck in the plaster so that it won?t peel, chip, or wash off. This is one reason that frescoes can last a very long time.

Glitter Slime  
In this activity students make 'slime' from glue and water. The glue and water mixture contains long chains of a polymer called polyvinyl acetate. When you add the borax solution, it links the long polymer chains together, changing the liquid into a slimy glob. When you add the glitter to the slime, it stays there and does not easily come back out.,Students investigate how this slime is like mucus that we find in our bodies. Our natural mucus contains sugars and proteins, which are also polymers. Mucus protects many other parts of your body.

Eggstra-ordinary Gas Pressure  
Students place an egg between two inflated zip-closing bags. When dropped from a height the egg manages to survive, intact. By inflating and then sealing the zip-closing bags, students created gas,pressure inside the bags. There was nowhere for the air inside the bag,to go. The more air added, the greater the gas pressure inside the bag. Because of this gas pressure inside the bags, the bags,served as a pillow for the egg. The egg did not break because it never,hit the ground. As long as the egg is secured by the gas ?pillows,? it will,not break.

Evaporation Exploration  
Fabrics like cotton can soak up sweat and water, and they dry slowly. So as a person sweats, cotton clothes can become wet and sticky, even heavy?they hold on to the water they soak up. New high-tech fabrics in modern sports clothing are different. They have the ability to pull moisture away from the skin and carry it to the outer surface of the clothing, where it can evaporate more easily and cool you off. In the following activity, students compare the rate of evaporation of water from cotton and a paper towel, which will act like a high-tech fabric.
