Hi. I am teaching a hands-on science class at the American Space Museum in Titusville, Florida. This month I am doing my class on electric current and magnetism. I planned to use an Oudin Coil, but the one I ordered got back ordered, and the other two companies that offer the device charge much more, and neither one can have it to me in time.
I thought I might build one instead. I am needing a schematic, and maybe some guidance here.
I have built a couple of game show consoles, so do have limited understanding and ability to build electronics from a schematic.
If you can help, please reply here, or you can e-mail me at <SNIP>. Thanks in advance.
