Sun's Magnetic Field Reversal Still A Scientific Mystery -- If you're confused about the sun's impending magnetic field flip, don't feel bad — scientists don't fully understand it, either. The sun's magnetic field will reverse its polarity three or four months from now, researchers say, just as it does every 11 years at the peak of the solar activity cycle. While solar physicists know enough about this strange phenomenon to predict when it will occur, its ultimate causes remain mysterious.
This play is filled with good scientific information but even better, it's entertaining and fun! Summary of the Play: The Sun thinks he/she is the most important thing in the Solar System and isn't afraid to let everyone know it. With the guidance of each planet, (including Venus, the diva and Saturn, the surfer) and each solar system object, the Sun realizes in the end, that each planet, moon, asteroid, comet, etc. has value. $
What are magnetic fields and how to see them. Great activity to do with children, all you need is a magnet, some iron filings and a piece of paper! #KS3 http://www.first4magnets.com/downloads/1377872820Activity-What-is-a-magnetic-field.pdf Get the materials here: http://www.first4magnets.com/rectangular-magnets-c35/educational-alnico-bar-magnets-iron-filings-set-science-education-p2515
