Gausses Gun Project
The Gausses Gun Kit / Rifle Kit, The Gauss Rifle is also known as the Gaussian gun is a very simple experiment that uses a magnetic chain reaction to launch a steel marble at a target at high speed. This educational and amusing project is very simple to build (it only takes a few minutes), is very simple to understand and explain, and yet fascinating to watch and to use. The Magnetic Accelerator makes a good science project because you can easily have a question, define variables, propose a hypothesis, and run scientific experiments about it. With the advent of cheap and easy-to-come-by Neodymium Magnets, it has become possible to design a number of simple but effective demonstrations of magnetic force.
