A Soda Bottle Magnetometer

Grades 6-9

Students will construct a magnetometer to monitor the changes in the Earth's magnetic field due to solar storms.

Materials include a two-liter soda bottle, index cards, packing tape, and other small items.

The cost is around five dollars.

Students enjoy this hand-on activity.

This is a great project to continue monitoring at home, as well as for the school!
