    The first contribution that can be represented is the dipole contribution. For this we put the bar magnet next to the spinning carousel. The orbital contribution can be simulated by putting a child holding an electrically charged ball on the edge of the spinning carousel. This charge will represent an electron spinning around the nucleus. This current will give rise to the orbital contribution. The Fermi contribution could be incorporated by having the child move to the center and back, as to simulate a charge distribution that can overlap with the core region. To measure if these contributions will have the desired effect, we can put a magnetometer in the center of the carousel. This will measure the strength of the given field contributions.
