In 1999, a Japanese five-car maglev train set a record of 345 miles her hour. During the Maglev Cars workshop you will discover how the relationship between magnetism and electricity made this impressive speed record possible. In addition, you will have an opportunity to build a simple maglev track, electromagnet, compass and the world's simplest motor. You will also discover how motors and generators works as you build your own "futuristic Maglev" car to race and take home.
