This incredible experiment kit explores the science behind cutting-edge magnetic levitation transformation.  The train is modeled after real-life maglev services such as the train in Shanghai that can reach speeds of 268 mph.  The Magnetic Levitation Express kit will allow children to build and experiment with a scale-model of such trains, and learn how electromagnets, propulsion magnets, and levitation magnets are used to help the train hover and accelerate forward.  Precisely placed magnetic strips are built into the side o the gude-way track to allow the train to maintain a stable hover and run smoothly at hih speeds.  After building the train, curious minds can learn the basic principles of how magnets repel and attract each other, watching these processes in action.  This is an ideal do-it-yourself science fair, after-school, ort summer workshop project with the bonus gift of learnig the basics of electro-magnetic theory.  Experts believe that the retention of a child's learning multiplies if they can coordinate reading with actual hands-on experience.  With 155 assembly parts, it's a wonderful experiment for the young train or magnet enthusiast, and constitutes a gateway to further scientific inquiry.  Fast, pollution-free, and immaculately quiet, the Magnetic Levitation Express demonstrates the exciting implications of emergent technology.

Features:

  • Build a scale model maglev train and guideway rail
  • Uses the repelling/attractive qualities of magnets to cause the train to levitate
  • Train measures about 11in x 1.5in x 1.25in and hovers about 4mm off the track surface
  • Children will learn the basics of electromagnetic theory while building hands-on confidence
  • 155 assembly parts and hours of educative fun for young minds
