This web page contains a set of 12 simple experiments, or "snacks", on the topic of magnetism. All are appropriate for use in high school, and about half could be well adapted for middle school. Exploratorium Science Snacks are miniature versions of popular exhibits at the Exploratorium museum. This section includes activities on manipulating a grape with magnets, creating a magnetic field stronger than the Earth's, and building a motor.
EDITOR'S NOTE: The materials required for most of these experiments are readily available and inexpensive, however, a few call for unusual types of magnets.
