Magic of Magnets

Held on Saturday 21 September 2019

Magnets are all around us!

Humans have learned to design and use magnetic materials in increasingly ingenious ways.

Come and play with modern magnets and learn how they are used in the home, electric cars, wind turbines, space craft and computers, to name but a few examples.

For the really keen - you can build your own loudspeaker...

With Saxtead resident, John Speight.

John has been involved in the science of electronic and magnetic materials for over 50 years.
