Homemade Survival Compass
It’s rainy, but hiking season is just around the corner. So, this month the lab is all about a survival basic: The Compass.
What happens if yours breaks in your bag? We’re going to build a simple one from scratch with the science of magnetism so you’ll always be able to find your way home.
To the right you’ll see a picture. Click it to download a PDF which has your workshop details, such as software and hardware you will need to round up to do this workshop from your home right along with us. The packet also has the step by step directions — in case you want to practise behind your little’s back so it looks like you’re magical too.
Participation in these workshops just means that you help your children along as they explore the world around them. We’ll guide by showing you all what to do, explain the science and a little history, and give you ideas for future experiments. All you have to do is gather the tools and have fun helping your children as we all explore our world together.
Any links in the PDFs go straight to the cheapest product we could find at the time of making the lab. Prices may have changed. Some links may be affiliate links, which give us a small commission at no extra cost to you.
