With this kit, you can conduct 25 different experiments to learn how an electric motor converts electricity into motion, and how an electric generator converst motion into electricity. The included electric motor is made of transparent plastic to show how the inside components work. Set up the motor to run on battery power and learn how a motor works. Then reconfigure the device to work in reverse as a hand-crank electric generator. Then experiment with magnets to learn about the force of magnetism and how magnetic fields relate to electric current, build simple circuits, and more!
