  Abstract: This poster will show the lab my students perform using a Slinky as a solenoid to investigate the magnetic field inside the solenoid. This is an open-ended lab with little instruction given to the students. The basic equipment is a Slinky, D cells, a 10 Ohm resistor, wires and a way to detect the magnetic field. Student results from the lab will be shown.
