*Great Science Magnets For Experimenting & Fun!

*Alnico magnets are made up of Aluminum, Nickel, and Cobalt. They are very strong and are ideal for a variety of science experiments.

Alnico Magnet Facts:

*Alnico Bar and Cow Magnets are perfect for demonstrating the magnetic lines of force. Simply cover a magnet with a piece of paper, then sprinkle iron filings over the top and watch them form into the lines of force.

*Alnico Horseshoe Magnets can lift three times more than a bar magnet of the same size and weight.

*Alnico Cow Magnets are really used in cows to prevent “hardware disease”.

Bar Magnets:
Sometimes simpler is better! Economical magnets in a basic bar shape feature an opposite pole on each end, creating an interesting arc-shaped magnetic field to explore. Ideal for activities that do not require a lot of lifting power. Poles are color coded and/or stamped with letters. Generally, alnico magnets have greater strength and durability, whereas ceramic varieties are lighter and more inexpensive.
