Ran Ji is a parent of EYEC, who studied her PhD in Material Science. Ran’s experiment involved groups of children using magnetic wands to discover what objects and items in their room were magnetic and non-magnetic. The children really enjoyed exploring all corners of their room and even using the wands on themselves. Some of the children also discovered how to move a magnetic item without even touching it!
The experiment was a great way of introducing the idea to the children that many everyday items can be categorized based on their properties and in this case magnetic and nonmagnetic items. A big thank you to Ran for taking part in Science month with us!
