MagLev Contest Professional Development

Monday, January 12th from 9:00am - 12:00pm


Location: Cradle of Aviation
Description: A new method of transportation may be in our future as moving traffic halts to complete gridlock. In fact, many experts believe the best way to solve this problem is to design a new transportation system. One approach is to develop “MagLev” vehicles which float over a fixed track, supported (levitated) and driven by magnetic fields.

The MagLev Contest asks middle school aged students to design and create magnetic levitation vehicles using math, science, and technology principles to optimize the design of a MagLev vehicle.

Explore MagLev technology and how to construct your own MagLev vehicle in this session!

The MagLev Contest was established by Brookhaven National Laboratories and the Cradle is excited to continue their venture in this field of engineering science.
