Magnets Fantastic

At school, they teach you that iron, nickel and cobalt are magnetic, and that's about it. But that isn't the whole story. It's barely even the beginning. In fact, all kinds of things are magnetic, from pencil leads and beautiful crystals, to frogs and even the air we breathe...

In this interactive, family-friendly show full of experiments and demonstrations, we explore and explain all this and more from the world of Magnets Fantastic.
