Build your own “Perpetual” Motion Machine, powered by an invisible magnetic field. Learn why scientists, engineers and mathematicians have never been able to create such a machine, without the addition of an external energy source (like batteries). Explore different kinds of motion machines that have been proposed, and understand why they didn’t work. Learn about magnets and the First and Second Laws of Thermodynamics. Requires 4 (1.5V) AA batteries (not included). Ages 8+.
