Senator Kelly was recently turned into a mutant and is attempting to escape his jail cell. As Magneto walks to the senator's cell, metal plates come flying from elsewhere to create a bridge for him. Magneto then uses his powers to open the jail cell and talk to the senator. After the senator escapes, Magneto uses his powers to trap Sabretooth in the cell as punishment.
Beakman builds a DIY compass using a needle and water, shows it in action and then explains the science with a short animation clip. Then there is a song about magnetism. Beakman then explains how the earth acts as a magnet and this is why compasses always point north.
In this episode the data from a murdered researcher's computer is recovered after being "wiped". In the clip, Charlie uses the basics of magnetism and binary encoding to explore how the two are combined to store data on hard disk drives and how this data might be recovered after being overwritten with other data.
Neil deBuck Weasel and the opossums are happy to find space rocks, which consist of iron, carbon, and a hint of nickel. They soon learn that the rocks have unusually strong magnetic fields and attract to each other. Although largely exaggerated, this clip could be used to illustrate magnetism and the elements found on asteroids.
