You can build a electric simple motor with just a few supplies. Each part of the engine is readily available or in some cases can be replaced.
Supplies you will need:
- Insulated copper wire (anything from 24 to 28 gauge will do)
- Neodymium magnet,
- A common AAA battery
- Masking tape
The base of this motor is a plastic card that was no longer used, but you can use a piece of wood or cardboard.
