MOSEM Low-Tech Kit

Contents of the MOSEM Low-Tech Kit

The prototype “Low-Tech Kit” developed in the MOSEM Project contains a large collection of equipment and materials for performing many different experiments with electricity, magnetism and electromagnetic induction. Both materials and experiments are described in details further in the MOSEM Teacher Guide.

The MOSEM Teacher Seminar explains in more detail how these experiments can be used to promote Minds-On teaching and learning of magnetism, electrical conduction and electromagnetic induction at the upper secondary school level.

Low-Tech Kit details

The prototype kit weighs about 23 kg and contains a total of 374 parts. The main parts are as follows:

MOSEM Low-tech Kit - exterior

MOSEM Low-tech Kit - exterior

  • Box with small non-magnetic items
  • Small box with strong magnets, etc
  • Small box with wires, etc
  • Two upper trays with inclined plane, experiment table etc.
  • A main compartment with equipment, tools, tubes, magnets and 3 boxes
  • Trolley with wheels, telescope handle, lock and keys

The trolley has a 7 year warranty, but since it was purchased in Norway and heavily modified it is not trivial to return it (empty) for repairs using the guarantee. We have found that the telescope handle can break if you use it to lift the trolley. Please use the built-in handles on the top and the side to carry the trolley.
