This  apparatus makes apparent the field lines of a magnetic field using multiple compasses in 3d.  The user can pick up a magnet, orientate it and move it to wherever he/she wants.  All the while the compasses indicate the field lines.


The magnet can be placed in the middle of the apparatus to illustrate the classic symmetry of a bar magnet’s field.  This is a very dramatic and realistic experiment.
