Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Materials
- cigar box
- old tin beer can
- levitation device (this is the one I am using)
Step 2: Wiring
Drill a .5" hole in the back of the cigar box for the power cord to feed through
Step 3: Wiring
Feed the power cord through
Step 4: Wiring
Connect the power cord to the magnet base
Step 5: Planter
Cut the top off of an old tin beer can using a standard kitchen can opener
Step 6: Planter
By using a tin can, there is no need for glue since the magnetic disk will hold tight, however if you choose to use an aluminum can (or any other material for the planter) glue will be required
Step 7: Hover Plant
The plant used in the photo is a succulent (which requires soil), however I highly recommend using air plants since they are much lighter.
