Magnetic levitation Floating Train
Award Winning Magnetic Levitation Floating Train by CIC Robotics is absolutely amazing for those children who love science and trains.
Without wheels, the Magnetic Levitation Express uses magnetic levitation technology for this exciting new kit.
Electromagnet, propulsion magnets and levitation magnets are used to create propulsion.
These scientifically placed magnetic strips are built in the side of guideway to allow the Magnetic Levitation Express to hover stably and run smoothly at high speeds.
After building the train kit and rail kit, children can learn the basic principles of how magnets repel and attract each other.
Maglev, which means ‘magnetic levitation’, involves using magnets to lift and propel the train around a track. The train has no wheels and minimal friction, and can travel at an incredible speed!
With this kit you can construct your own track to run the maglev train provided. The kit also contains information about how the maglev system works.
This Magnetic Levitation Floating Train Set uses the same technology as ‘Maglev’ trains, the fastest trains in the world. Maglev trains do not have wheels, rather they use magnets to propel forward without touching the ground, and because there’s no friction, they’re speedy and soundless.
Kids can build their own Maglev train set using a few simple tools (you’ll need a screwdriver and diagonal cutter) and before you know it, the model will be flying around the track at amazing speeds without ever having touched the ground!
Smartly gift boxed, this Magnetic Levitation Train Set is sure to impress young science geeks.
It is ideal for a do-it-yourself science fair, after-school, or school holidays workshop project with the bonus gift of learning electro-magnetic theory.
With only 155 assembly parts, it’s a wonderful instrument for the beginner enthusiast, and a gateway to ignite opportunities in fun learning.
Electromagnetic power means the train really floats.
Great way to learn about electromagnetism.
No wheels – no motor – just SCIENCE!
