Get in flow with electric circuits. Measure the electrical current in lemons. Create your own potato clock or lamp! Find your way with magnets. Build a strong electromagnet and explore the amazing properties of magnetic and electric fields. Be surprised by superconductivity and the inner workings of computers. This will be one great electromagnetic event!
