3rd Quarter Physics Project: Simple Electric Motor (SEM)

a. Students will work with a partner (dyad).
b. Working alone is allowed.
a. Students will provide their own materials.
b. A list of the materials needed for the SEM project will be provided.
c. The materials for the SEM project should be complete and must have the
correct specifications as indicated in the list of materials. They are also
allowed add-ons.
d. Groups with incorrect, incomplete or no materials will not be allowed to
make the project; they will automatically get ZERO (no project make ups)!
a. The materials in the list must be purchased before the scheduled project
making date.
b. Students may practice ahead of time. They can refer to the how-to videos
posted online and read the procedure in advance.
c. A rubric scoring guide will also be given ahead of time to students so they
may refer to it from time to time when they make their prototypes.
a. The schedule will be posted in the Physics Laboratory (Room 3002/3003)
and through Maimar Rola; it will also be announced by the teacher
b. The students must be present on the scheduled date they are to execute
the project; in case of absence, students must present an excuse letter for
consideration. His/her partner must be present and reason valid to be
c. There will be no other schedule for project making other than the date
given to their class.
d. Venue for the project execution is the Physics Laboratory or their
classroom during their Science class period.
e. It will be an on the spot project making and presentation.
f. Students will be given 30 to 40 minutes to finish the project then their
output will be evaluated right after.
a. A scoring rubric (given earlier to the students) will be used to assess the
final project output.
b. Students must submit the rubric to the teacher for the project evaluation
right after they finish.
c. Dyads without scoring rubric will not be assessed (since the rubric is in the
list of materials) and hence get ZERO.
d. The finished project should have the best quality and functionality.
a. Students will submit a How-to paper on the day of their on the spot project
b. The formatting, design and other details of the How-to paper should be as
what the SEM Scoring Rubric describes.
c. There should be only two (2) pages.
3rd Quarter Physics Project: Simple Electric Motor (SEM)
Here’s the list of the materials and tools you need to make the SEM project. Please put in mind
that you are discouraged to spend too much; be resourceful in acquiring the materials, if there’s
no purchase needed then do not buy anymore. Be creative in your presentation (the look and
feel of the final output); you may put add-ons i.e. switch or etc… Practice and be sure you have
a working prototype and most of all, have fun! ;)

Take note of the following variables*:

• diameter/thickness of the wire
• number of loops/windings (for the wire coil)
• shape of the coil (circular, oval or flat)
• size of the coil (big or small diameter)
• size, shape and number of the magnets
• diameter of the copper wire
• number (or voltage) of dry cells
