Amaze and excite your students with ferrofluid, an incredible substance which is in liquid form until a strong magnetic field is brought near it. As the magnet comes closer to the ferrofluid, spikes begin to rise from it. Ask students to determine the reason for this peculiar reaction. Ferrofluid, a colloid with magnetic nanoparticles suspended in an oil base, was originally discovered by NASA scientists. Now ferrofluids are used to make rotating seals in high vacuum equipment and can be even found in high end speakers.
