Cochlear Implant Science Experiment

Just a quick posting, as we are off to dance competition this weekend. My lovely daughter did her science fair experiment on Which Magnet will stick to a cochlear implant. As you can see she won 2nd place in the school competition. I am very proud of her hard work. This project grow from a natural curiosity into why is mom putting magnets on her head! She wanted to see if any other magnets would work. It did! 3 out of 6 magnets worked. So now we are off to the county science fair on March 7th.

So, which magnets do stick? I've always been curious about the magnets thing.

The only magnets that will stick are strong magnets, like horseshoe magnets and magnetmen(teachers use).

I am proud of my daughter. She is very funny about my implants. She knows more about it then me. I caught her research it on the internet. Her reason, so she could know if something went wrong and what I can not do. She wanted to make sure I can still go swimming with her.

Well off to school and county fair. She get a t-shirt.

Hey guess what? I actually wear a cochlear implant and did an experiment similar to your daughter. Instead I researched how a cochlear implant works!!
