Taking Homework to the Next Level.

Ella's incredible piece of work showing the magnetic field lines in 3D around a bar magnet.

Year 7 student Ella Lewis prodcuced an incredible piece of home learning for Mr Fairweather’s Physics homework (Make a model of a magnet).  Working with her father, she has used a variety of techniques that work exceptionally well in combination.

The best thing about this is that it forms an amazing teaching resource  –   I’d use this to teach about magnetic field lines at KS3/4 as it’s so immediate and clear, better than any diagram, experiment or simulation I’ve ever used in the classroom.

Perhaps she will find the time to put up some build instructions or an instructable to help other students to do the same.

My only wish would be to have two, so you could get students to imagine what would happen if you bought them pole to pole!
