Experiment set PRIMARY SCHOOL 2 (Electrics and Magnetism)


Finding out about magnetism 

Two powerful cylindrical magnets, seven handy iron discs and specially grained iron filings help children to find out about the key phenomena arising from magnetism and how these things fit together. Wether it is investigating

  • how magnetic force is distributed along a bar magnet, 
  • seeing how two magnets can be made into one,  
  • researching the field between the poles of two magnets,  
  • how the current flows and a circuit can be created

every one of these experiments is full of surprises.

Electric circuits made easy

With the help of highly flexible silicone leads and smoothly contacting safety plugs with contact-proof metal strips, children can

  • put together various variations of a simple circuit with no worries
  • always understand with ease where the electricity is flowing

Each of the 15 experiments is full of surprises. We rely on the highest level of security.

No need to plug in

Thanks to three AA batteries which can easily be swapped in and out of the practical plastic battery compartment, all experiments on electricity can be carried out without having to plug into the mains or use a separate power supply.
