The EISCO Transformer Coils and Core Activity Set allows students to conduct activities to illustrate electromagnetism, induction and basic transformer experiments.
This kit consists of a plastic base, a laminated iron core, mounting fixtures, and six coils protected in a heat resistant film. Topics covered include Lenz' Law, Faraday's Law, how iron cores increase magnetic field strength, and electromagnetic induction itself. This versatile piece of equipment can also be used to teach about how transformers used by power companies carry electrical energy. Extensive instructions on how to use the apparatus as a demonstration as well as inquiry based lessons surrounding electromagnetic induction and transformers are included as well as five different student activity capture sheets.
