science fair project help please!!! i'm doing a science fair project on magnets and metals and why they attract. i've already tried googling for a good description of why magnets and metals attract, but none of the answers that popped up were good enough. they do not explain very well the process of it. i understand there is a magnetic field and all, but how does it get there and what in the piece of metal causes them to move together. PleASe heLP!!!!!!!
