About the STEM TOY (Hovering Compass)
Do you know Earth has its own magnetic field? Just like the blue sky, Earth’s magnetic field has always been there. Discovered by accident, lodestones (magnets) were further refined and a compass was born. Hailed as one of the top four inventions of China, let’s discover and see for ourselves how magnets are used in a compass to tell direction, since they always rest in a North-South direction due to Earth’s magnetic field.
We will also do two additional experiments commonly seen in Primary 3, 4, 5 and 6 homework, tests and exams: the number of paper clips attracted by a magnet + the ‘floating’ paper clip with this Hovering Compass STEM Toy. Be a scientist and note down your observations with the worksheets provided. Answer Key included.
All worksheets and answer key are printed out and enclosed in the STEM Toy kit in the package.
