Magnet Icon Models
This display features several magnet models. We built this for the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) here in Colorado. This display in the NCAR showroom features a tabletop computer that reads the marking tags under each model. The program then displays the magnetic fields related to that object.
The program is sophisticated in that it not only represents the magnetic fields, it also shows how they interact with each other. Many adults and children visit NCAR and enjoy this interactive experience.
