From simple refrigerator magnets to wireless chargers, the applications of magnetism and electricity (electromagnetism) are everywhere. But how do you teach electromagnetism to middle and high school students who don’t have the mathematical background to discuss Maxwell’s equations? Join this presentation for a look at a hands-on, phenomenon-led unit of study that begins with exploring magnets and static electricity and ends with assembling electric generators, building electric motors, and lighting a light bulb - wirelessly! - through the use of a homemade electric transformer. Come for a sampling of hands-on experiences that utilize the science and engineering practices; leave with a complete unit of study!
