Thames & Kosmos Electricity & Magnetism Kit, from 8 years
Gold Winner of the "Parent's Choice Foundation" this science kit from Thames & Kosmos features more than 60 experiments to understand electricity and magnetism, two of the most popular subjects with children.
The 64 page full colour experiment guide is easy and clear to follow and guides children through a series of experiments, each building on the knowledge gained in the previous steps. This science kit will keep children engaged over a number of months as they keep coming back to complete more experiments.
Learn how electricity and magnetism are fundamental to our World and Universe and how closely related they are. Children will experiment with electric currents and magnetic fields to build series and parallel circuits to light up a light bulb. They will experiment with switches and push buttons and assemble circuits that include spinning motors, switches and up to 3 light bulbs.
They will then conduct tests to see what materials are magnetic, from understanding what magnetic means to actually making a metal magnetic, there are a whole host of experiments to thoroughly investigate magnetism.
Finally, putting together everything they have learnt, children will construct a loudspeaker, an electromagnetic relay switch and a Morse code telegraph key.
