Magnetic Levitation Train Kit
You will find no wheels on the Magnetic Levitation Express. Electromagnet, propulsion magnets and levitation magnets are used to create propulsion. The scientifically placed magnetic strips are built in to the side of the guide-way (included) to allow the Magnetic Levitation Express to hover securely and run smoothly at high speeds. After building the 10.87" x 1.44" x 1.17" train and 29" x 17.72" x 1.34" rail kit, the user can learn the basic principles of how magnets attract and repel each other. This is an ideal project for a DIY science fair, after-school or summer workshop project with the bonus gift of learning electro-magnetic theory. It's a wonderful instrument for the beginner enthusiast and a gateway to ignite opportunities in fun-learning.
