Faraday rotation experiment for a high school student?

Is it possible to replicate the Faraday rotation experiment for a high school junior? I am in honors physics (IB) and have been taught about waves, electromagnetism, energy transfers, etc. My physics teacher will guide me if I choose to do this. Is the experiment too ambitious?

We have a big demountable transformer kit, with big coils and iron cores, and the instruction book includes a Faraday Rotation experiment. I will have a look at the handbook tomorrow. The transformer windings are about the size of a coffee cup, to give you an idea, so you need a big magnet to do it. I think the light beam is passed through glass.
