Making an Electromagnet

by theadventuresofbeka

Supplies Needed:


thin metal wire

metal nail

paper clip (or other small metal object)


Wrap the metal wire around the nail. The more rotations around the nail; the stronger the magnet will be.

Place one end of the wire on one terminal of the battery and place the other wire end on the other terminal.

After holding the wire ends for a second, the nail will be magnetic.
