Dear all,

You are invited to a Make-&-Take INSET at St George’s College, Weybridge, on Thursday 16th May from 4pm – 5pm. The INSET is totally free to you, as it is all funded by the Institute of Physics.

The Simplest Motor! A super-easy motor for pupils to make, with guaranteed results. If you have found motor kits with yokes, magnadurs and DC power supplies fiddly, then this motor – made from a plastic cup, a D cell, two neodymium magnets, two paper clips, some copper wire and an elastic band – is for you!

We will start with a kicking wire demo that pupils can make themselves, then follow on with the motor, with guaranteed success! Finally, we will look at how to make homopolar motors to stretch the minds of more advanced students and sixth formers.
