You can make a magnet three ways:No1. Get a metal rod and wrap some Insulated copper wire around it. You can use some other wires but it might not work as well. Make sure the wire isn't too thick. Wrap the wire 50+ times. Connect the two ends of the wire to a battery. Don't connect it to a strong power source as it will get very hot. I connected mine to a 1.5 volt battery and it could lift up my scissors then drop them again.(Note: The iron rod now has become a weak permanent magnet. The more current you add to it the more stronger it will be and the longer you have the battery on the stronger it will be.. Also, don't drop it as it will lose it's magnetic properties.)No2. Get a magnet. The stronger the better. Rub one end only of the magnet up a piece of metal then when you get to the end take the magnet off the metal and take it back to the start making sure the magnet doesn't touch the metal. I don't really like this method as it takes a long time to get the metal to pick up anything decent.No3. Get a magnet and let it stick to a piece of metal. The piece of metal will be weak but enough to make the needle on a compass move.
