KELVIN®'s Maglev Track with see-through side rails allows students to see the levitation of the vehicle while it is on the track and to run vehicles with electric motors. Although it is made of plastic, this track can be electrified with KELVIN®'s power supply (#841051). It also offers them the ability to measure the height of the vehicle, above the track, as cargo is added.
Students will plan, build, test and modify a maglev vehicle with an electric motor. One challenge is to design a vehicle that will go the fastest when propelled by an electric-powered propeller while using different brush configurations: 2 or 4, side or upper. Another challenge for students is how to supply the needed electric power to the vehicles during the run on the road without batteries?
