A simple, fun to do and easy do it yourself (DIY) kit for making a model of magnetic crane.
Magnetic crane works on the principle of electromagnetism. Due to electricity flowing through the wire, the circuit becomes magnetic and this magnetism helps the crane to lift up light metallic objects. This model is a very easy science project for school kids in class 7th and 8th.
If you’re looking at a project that would teach your child the integrated concept of electric circuit, magnetism as well as the principle of how a crane works, there is no better physics project on electric current and electromagnetism than this.
It is simple, it’s fun, easy to make and creates a fully functional science model that actually can lift pins and smaller metallic objects like a real crane!
