Year 12 Physics Electric Motors

This Term, Year 12 Physics students have been building working electric motors as part of the Electromagnetism topic.

On Thursday, former student & reigning electric motor champion Michail Muller (class of 2018) returned to the College to meet the students whose electric motors have taken the honours!

Hannah built an amazing solar powered motor, with non-contact magnetic suspension and a very low friction pivot of a ball point pen tip on glass. While Sam, Josh and Jack built a 32 volt monster, all made by hand with no bought parts. They got their electromagnets from old microwave ovens.
