We know energy comes in several varieties, and we can transform electric power into various functional works or mechanical energy with the help of machines like electric motors. But have you ever imagined how these electric motors had been made and worked? Thus, today, we will look at how to make a simple electric motor science project.


Before moving further, let us first have a look at the resources that we should gather.



Steps To Make A Simple Electric Motor

Step 1: Take a wire and go to its center point. Now start to wrap the wire tightly around the marker. Slide down the coil, begin wrapping every loose end of the wire around the coil and then take away the cables from the loop as displayed below.
