Wordless Wednesday Build a Motor in 10 Minutes #WW

James is learning about Electricity/ Magnetism in his 4th grade class. Dad and the boys built their own electric motor using the instructions called Build a Motor in 10 Minutes found at scitoys.com.  The motor is simply a battery, a magnet, and a small coil of wire you make yourself. If all things are put together correctly, the little motor really spins around at a fast rate!

Happy Wordless Wednesday!
