Thwack, Thomp, CRASH – you broke through the crust! The clock is ticking as you race with your electromagnet to gather iron and load it onto the spaceship. This is way more than just a magnet on a stick, your Pick-Up Stick was custom engineered by you with both an electromagnet and a grapple (claw) that grabs soup cans, paper clips, even candy. Made with TeacherGeek's custom aluminum wire, it’s never been easier to make your own super-powerful battery magnet.

Mining in space, hanging paperclips, sorting recyclables – free optional challenges and labs give you plenty of options to customize this activity.
