Curious Minds Did You Know? The most powerful magnets in the universe are stars that in a supernova explosion have collapsed to form a neutron star. The “magnetars” are left behind and are strong enough to destroy plants if they got close enough!
Haematite is an exciting form of iron oxide which has special magnetic properties. It was a very popular mineral during Victorian times, the Victorians carved it for wear as jewellery.
Hold the pair of magnets in your hand. Try to keep them separate between your fingers and throw them into the air to watch as they collide due to their invisible magnetic pull! So much fun to be had – unleash your creative side!
A brilliant gift set for a young, excited and inquisitive mind. Ideal to foster curiosity and encourage scientific learning on rainy days and a fantastic school holiday activity.
