Magnetism Badge

Corralling rice with a magnet.
Our Quest Club members had the opportunity to learn more about magnets last Thursday at our monthly Quest Club meeting by working on the Magnetism Badge. Members made a compass out of a needle they magnetized, stuck through a marshmallow, and set to float in a bowl of water. Members also corraled rice on a piece of paper by using a magnet under the paper and a staple above. And they explored different magnets, how they interact with each other and how they interact with some magnetic and some non-magnetic materials.
