This is a Science Experiment with magnets. You can make swinging pendulums, floating sticks, spinning bodies, and other magnetic systems. As you try different combinations you will learn how a pendulum can swing freely, or how a staff can float by it self. Other ways you can explore magnetism is by trying different numbers of magnets and also different positions and polarizations (attracts or repels). Included is a stand for the experiments, a disc of iron filings, 8 strong disc magnets, 2 magnetic staffs, a magnetic field unit, and a containment shield. As a child tries these experiments, he/she begins to understand the way magnetics work. I think this is a very good learning toy for that young scientist.
Not for under 6- small pieces.
