Easy Science Experiments for Kids
Science is a process of discovering things that could be essential in
knowing how things work. The knowledge generated by science is powerful.
It is used to develop new technologies, it can treat many diseases and
it can create solutions to many problems. Science can be use in everyday
Understanding science may not be easy, but as you go along you will
enjoy the challenges that comes along the way. As a kid you might often
ask questions like why the sky is blue? why the water is clear? Science
can answer questions based on facts, it is straightforward and only
focuses on what is true. By understanding science you may find the
answer that satisfies your curiosity. Learning science can be fun, you
may try to experiment on things and see how it works, it may be tough
but its fulfilling.
Experimenting with magnetism and
electricity may take a lot of process, both have been known to exist for thousand of
years. Hans Oersted proved that electricity produces magnetism and
magnets can produce electricity as found out by Michael Faraday.
Electricity produces magnetism when a physical property of a matter
comes in contact with other matter of the same condition, with speed,
which only lasts while electrical current is flowing.
Light bulbs are
able to produce light following this theory using conductors and
insulators. Insulators help avoid getting to unintended places while
conductors help in keeping electricity to a path or a circuit.
Lighthouses are also product of magnetism and electricity. Lighthouses
are towers build to help sea navigators find safe entries and it can
also help in aerial navigation. Its source of light is a lamp is either
electric or oil-fueled.. Originally though, open fires or candles where
used to light the tower. As technology advanced, the lighthouses'
buildings also improved as iron or steel were used for its skeleton
instead of the all-bricks building in the past. Fresnel lenses are used
for better and brighter lighting. In modern times, lighthouses uses
solar-charged batteries and has a single stationary flashing light to
Magnetism and Electricity has worked for us hand in hand through the
years to provide us comfort and convenience.
They are the two essential factor of science. You will appreciate and
understand science more after knowing the importance of magnetism and
