Electricity at the Lancaster Science Factory

You can explore these two related phenomena that we use every day here at the Lancaster Science Factory:

  • You may not be able to see a magnetic field, but you can see the shape of it. It sounds impossible but you can do it here.
  • Draw on the power of electricity to run motors and lights. Combine them in a different way and see if you need more power or less.
  • Muscle our you own electricity and power your own household objects.
