One day, instead of people wearing those Yale/Geek jumpers, people will wear “Science” jumpers. I can only commend my teachers for their ability to make such a cool subject so inconceivably boring. But here to prove that science is awesome is this incredible home experiment.
Using nothing more than Buckyballs, an AA battery and some copper wire, you can create your very own homemade motor. Motors are used in just about everything from fans to electric watches. They converts stored electrical energy into mechanical energy based on the principles of electromagnetism discovered by Michael Faraday.
Here is the incredible Buckyballs motor
And here’s how to make one
For another cool science video, find out what happens when you mix water, syrup and oil. It’s truly fascinating.
