This AstroPi resource helps secondary school students investigate the magnetic field of the Earth. The series of activities develops from basic principles of magnetism through to some understanding of the nature and cause of the Earth's magnetism.
The guide links to several other eLibrary resources and a bespoke AstroPi presentation.
The resource ends with a series of challenges, based on entry to the AstroPi school competition by the UK Space Agency and the Raspberry Pi Foundation. These programming challenges, making use of a specially-developed sensor suite, provide students with the opportunity to carry out experiments and run projects in space.
This resource supports the Astro-Pi competition.
