Explorations of Static Magnetic Fields

MAGNA AR can be used to explore a wide variety of physics scenarios of magnetic fields. Click the following links to see videos of example mapped 3-D fields:

Planetary Magnetism

Our project collaborated with the Temple University / AAPT NASA Space Science Education Consortium team to develop the "Modeling Planetary Magnetism" lesson using Magna AR. The lesson was tested with a group of educators in a workshop at the AAPT Winter Meeting 2020 in Orlando, FL to get feedback and refine activities.


Click on the teacher guide and student worksheet below (make a copy from Google Docs versions), or see the Digi Kit below from the AAPT to get the lesson and a series of vetted resources to contextualize the activity further.
