No matter where we live, each and every one of us depends on transportation to some degree. Whether it's in our own personal cars or on public transportation shared with others, transportation is an important technology developed by engineers. Our focus in this unit will be on the Maglev train!
Hikaru is a young boy living in Japan. His parents own a small toy shop and everything goes well until a larger, competitive toy store opens across the street.
