Electromagnetism Trainer

SKU: CL-1902_053242

The ConsuLab CL-1902 Electromagnetism trainer is designed for your students to physically demonstrate, test, measure, and experience electromagnetism using a “hands-on” approach to learning. Many aspects of a modern vehicle, whether a car, truck, combustion powered, hybrid or electrically driven, depend on some form of electromagnetism. Demonstrate, visualize and experience hands-on the principles of electromagnetism as applied to modern vehicles. Students will prove their learning through a series of self-paced student exercises and experiments while they practice and demonstrate basic principles of electromagnetism.
