We describe experiments designed to better understand the effects of turbulent flow and rotation on magnetic field self-generation. Three different types of liquid sodium experiments are detailed: mechanically forced experiments with an asymmetric geometry, a rotating convection experiment, and a planned larger experiment that is both mechanically forced and rotating.
