How can the Maglev move if it has no wheels?
There's no better way to figure out how it moves than to see and use magnets in action.
Here, a group of fourth graders used the properties of magnets to get a "ping-pong magnetic sailboat" to move across a pond.
Students also experimented with changing the number, type, and arrangement of magnets. They drew conclusions from their observations. Next step...designing a Maglev!
