A detector can be a pretty simple thing: in this case, a white plate with iron filings sprinked across it amount to a detector of the magnetic field associated with the bar magnet placed under the plate. Participants at Science Alive! 2009 could explore this and related magnetic phenomena at a booth set up courtesy of Dr. Vicki Frohne of Holy Cross College.
