Science projects and activities are truly fascinating for the kids. These science projects make it easy for the children to understand science in a very interesting manner. There is a huge range of science experiments for the kids to choose from and try at their home. Such science experiments have proved to be very beneficial in the development of child’s creativity, skills and understanding.
After conducting these science experiments a child is able to relate to the things happening around him. One of the most popular science experiments is the Mysterious Circles science experiment. This experiment is pretty simple to carry out and involves use of common household items we generally find at home.
Amazing Magnetic Field Science experiment :
To conduct this Mysterious Circles science experiment all you need is a cardboard, copper wire, battery, iron fillings and couple of glasses. First of all take two glasses of equal height and place them on a flat surface (table or ground) close to each other in such a manner that a cardboard can be place properly on top of them. Now take a cardboard and make a hole in its center with the help of a pin or a compass. Pass the copper wire through this hole and place the cardboard in a horizontal position on top of these glasses.
Take a battery and connect both the ends of copper wire to this battery. Now sprinkle some iron fillings on this cardboard and tap the cardboard gently with your finger. Soon you will be amazed to see that these iron fillings make round circles around the wire. This happens because of the direct current flowing through the wire which produces a magnetic field around it. This magnetic field results into iron fillings forming a circular pattern around the wire.
You might have seen that the Mysterious Circles science experiment is pretty easy to perform and is truly fascinating. Children can perform this experiment at home and show it to their family members or friends.
