The ferromagnetic fluid allows you to get a visual representation of the usually invisible magnetic fields that surround any ordinary magnet - it's truly fascinating to see and will "attract" the attention of older kids, and even adults.

Wave the magnet up and down the sides of the test tube or bring the fluid close, then pull it away and watch the nanomagnets line up and wave around as if by magic. Of course, it's not really magic, it's science. 

Ferromagnetic technology is used in all kinds of modern applications including speaker technology and in medical science in the form of MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging). You will see how this ferromagnetic fluid kit could be a useful introduction into a future career for budding sound engineers or medical personnel.

Specifications: Includes magnetic particles, magnet and test tube

Contains magnets. Suitable for ages 8+.
