Making MagLev Trains - All students will be working in pairs or small groups throughout all four sessions.

Each small team will research, design, build and test a magnetic levitation train. We will use cardboard, magnets and the laser cutter to construct our designs. Why would these be useful in our daily lives? What obstacles and drawbacks are keeping these from more popular use? Designs will be tested in the final class based on speed and cost-effectiveness.
