Electromagnetism is responsible for many phenomena encountered in our daily lives. While it was first discovered by Hans Christian Orsted, it was Michael Faraday's breakthrough in 1821 that propelled electromagnetism into modern applications. He successfully built two devices to produce electromagnetic rotation, one of which is now known as the homopolar motor. He further discovered electromagnetic induction and all these led to the foundation of modern electromagnetic technology (i.e. motors and generators).

In this workshop, students will learn the basics of electromagnetism, make their own homopolar motor and experience the phenomenon of electromagnetic induction. Students will be able to observe and investigate the turning effect on a current-carrying coil and the effects of a changing magnetic field on a conductor.
