CHAPTER 1 OBJECTIVE WHAT WE ARE
INTENDING TO DO IS A MAGNETIC BROOM THAT PICK UP ALL THE MAGNETIC TRASH SUCH AS CANS.
Welcome To Our Physics Science Fair.
∏ BACKGROUND We are going to build a magnetic broom. We think this experiment will be useful environmentally because this broom will pick the metallic trash on the streets and everywhere we go. We will basically need big magnets to build the broom they will be attached to a wood table. We are buying two batteries of 6 volts to get more electricity and we want to make it a little bit professional, so we are going to use a switch at the very top part of the broom and in that way we will be able to activate the magnets with the switch and when we raise the broom the magnets won’t fall oﬀ unless we deactivate it. We will put four wheels so that the broom can function well, also, we are going to cover the magnets with copper wire of the caliber of 22 so that the broom will function as we want it to function.
HYPOTHESIS If we build a broom with magnets in the bottom used to pick up all the trash in the streets and everywhere you go, then it will help us to keep our environment clean of metal because the magnets will be connected to two batteries and they will produce electricity to pick up all the metal. MATERIALS -‐2 batteries of 6 volts each -‐Coils of wire -‐Switch -‐Wood table -‐2 wheels -‐Cables -‐Metallic tube -‐Axle -‐ Magnets
Procedure ∏ 1. We are going to make a sketch of our broom. 2. We are going to research about the materials we are going to be using. 3. We will list the materials and buy them. 4. We will make the ﬁrst try of the broom. 5. We are going to put the tube with the wood table 6. We will paste the magnets and cover them with coil 7. We are going to paste the wheels 8. We will conect the batteries to the switch 9. We will expose the broom to Mr.C to check if it has any errors 10.We will correct the errors in a sketch. 11. We will build the broom with no errors.
Analysis Our project didn’t go as we planned because we didn’t found all the materials we needed to do this project, we were looking for them we didn’t had enough time because the date of the science fair was approaching. 6

Results ∏ The results of our experiment didn’t go as we planed, we couldn’t ﬁnd some materials we needed so instead of using a switch and batteries we pasted the magnets to the box and we made our experiment with permanent magnets.
