LSOP Live: Magnetism, March 11, 2022American nickels aren’t magnetic. But Canadian nickels are. So are some kinds of breakfast cereal. These are some of the surprising tidbits about magnetism we’ll cover in this episode, our last installment before Spring Break. We’ll make push pins dance, we’ll make a motor in under 30 seconds, we’ll use magnetism to record secret messages. [...]
LSOP: Invisible Forces, March 5, 2021
By request from a local school: Invisible Forces! You can’t see gravity—but you can certainly see its effects. And it works at a distance—you don’t need to be in contact with the earth to feel its pull. We say that the earth has a gravitational field around it—and if you are in the field, you […]
LSOP Live: Science Magic, December 11, 2020In this episode we things disappear, make things levitate in mid-air, make a broken glass reassemble itself and more! We do a lot of things that look like magic, and show you the science that makes the magic happen. As always, we show you a bunch of things you can try at home. Remember, it's [...]
LSOP Live: Magnetism, September 18, 2020Refrigerator magnets aren’t like other magnets…. They don’t have just one north and one south pole; they might have a dozen of each! And why do magnets stick to the refrigerator anyway? In this episode of LSOP Live we do more than a dozen cool experiments with magnets and magnetism. We show you where secret [...]
Everything You Need to Know About Magnetism
You probably have magnets stuck to your refrigerator at home. But there are also magnets in the power plant that provides electricity to your home. What are those magnets up to, and how do they do what they do?
Get Your Science On: Funky Ferro Fluid
This week, Mayon show’s us how to build an awesome experiment: Funky Ferro Fluid. Music is used to make a magnetic liquid dance!
EveryDay Science: Magnetism Part 11
Brian, Bailey and Taylor experiment with different was of using magnetism to store information and music! Also, the team visits Dr. Kristen Buchanan’s lab at Colorado State University, where she uses lasers to study the basic properties of magnets, and learn more about how they work.
EveryDay Science: Magnetism Part 10
Brian, Taylor and Bailey experiment with a magnet, a coil of wire, and an electric guitar. This is how a pickup works on an electric stringed instrument such as a guitar or bass.
EveryDay Science: Magnetism Part 9
The EveryDay Science Team investigates a phenomenon called induction.
EveryDay Science: Magnetism Part 8
The EveryDay Science team continues to investigate the interactions of magnets and electric charges. In this episode we use electromagnetism to listen to Bon Jovi and see some auroras!
