Could a flux capacitor really work? An engaging simulation encourages scholars to investigate Faraday's law. They experiment with various speeds, magnitude, voltage, and different-sized coils. Hopefully experimenters will be able to light the bulb by changing magnetic flux.
- Build the exact setup on the simulation in the classroom to see if the data is the same
- Requires the most recent version of Chrome, Firefox, or Safari depending on your operating system
- Assumes prior knowledge of Faraday's Law
- Offers three to six related teacher-submitted activities depending on if you teach middle or high school
- Translates into 40 different languages
- Provides insights into student thinking to help analyze answers and potential areas of confusion
