This week we are starting a project in science to help us learn about magnetism. For this project we will have to create two games that incorporate magnetism. The first game we have to create, in our design teams of two, is magnet fishing. We will have to figure out what number of batteries, coils on a nail, and other factors can be used to create the best electromagnet. The second game we will be creating is magnet hockey. Magnet hockey is similar to air hockey, but smaller and uses magnets to get a marble into a goal. We will be printing out plastic playing pieces on the 3-D printer, and then we will test the pieces to figure out which is the most effective.
