Balancing Pencil


Do you think you can balance a pencil using only magnets and tape? Discover how you can make a pencil stand on its tip by harnessing the power of magnets! Magnets are either attracted to each other (that’s how they hold things up on a refrigerator!) or repel each other. Arrange the magnets so that they repel each other and make your pencil spin!
