Make needle-magnets Category: Science
Dated: 2009-11-07
Magnetism can be passed from magnets to other magnetic materials so they become magnets too.  Here is a way to magnetize two needles.  You can use these needle-magnets for other experiments in this site.

Steps to be taken

1.  Hold a needle and stroke it gently 30 times with your magnet, in the same direction.  Do the same with the second needle, making sure that you use the same end of the magnet.

2.  Test your needle-magnets on some pins before you use them for other experiments.
