YouTuber TheBackyardScientist demonstrates the awesome power of a handheld induction heater.

Parents are always looking for new ways to get their children interested in STEM. Every day there is a new toy, camp, or TV show that promises to turn ordinary kids into engineering marvels. But some of these solutions come with a heavy price tag and there’s no guarantee that your children will become STEM prodigies. Instead, try conducting science experiments with your kids, like building a portable induction heater. Your children will learn how magnetic currents work while simultaneously turning everyday objects into sparking, smoldering, melted messes. In a recent video, YouTuber TheBackyardScientist demonstrates the awesome power of a handheld induction heater.
