DESCRIPTION

Maglev trains are a fascinating bit of physics. Trains are capable of travelling upwards of 260 miles per hour, while literally floating above the tracks. With this kit, you can explore how magnetic levitation works to propel a train as you build your own maglev train, and experiment with how much of a load it can carry. Use the easy to follow online instructions for  The Amazing Floating Train: How Much Weight Can A Maglev Train Hold? or design your own experiment. 

Part model making and science exploration, this kit serves as a fun introduction to physics with magnets and magnetic levitation.

This kit is compatible with a couple of different Science Buddies projects.  Please see our Maglev Train Kit Instructions for a full list of projects.

You will also need from home:

Depending on the project you are doing, you will need additional household items, such as tape, scissors, rulers, etc.  Please see the materials list for your chosen project for additional items needed to complete the project.
