Brian, Taylor, and Bailey team up once again to explore some of the basic properties of magnets. All magnets have at least two poles, one north and one south pole. Opposite poles attract each other and like poles repel each other.
Brian is joined by two young scientists, Bailey and Taylor, from Kinard Elementary School. Together they being to experiment with some magnetic materials including magnetite rocks, iron nails, steel nuts and nickel coins.
Brian, McKenzie and Taylor explore forces and torques in common kitchen tools. They use the relationship between force and distance to crack a walnut and slice and apple! All of these kitchen tools use either a lever or a wedge!
