BUILD YOUR OWN MAGNETIC LEVITATION TRAIN! The fastest train in commercial service in the world, the Shanghai Maglev, travels at speeds of up to....(wait for it)... 276 miles per hour! That's pretty rip-roaringly fast, and it's able to reach those speeds thanks to the power of Magnetic Levitation, or Maglev for short.
Maglevs use the power of magnets to lift and propel them. Unlike conventional trains Maglevs don't touch the ground, and this removal of any friction allows for those super-high speeds they're so famous for. It's pretty amazing, and now your child can build their very own Maglev train and watch the power of Magnetic Levitation in action with the Maglev Magnetic Levitating Train Model set!
The set includes a model train, tracks, and the magnets needed to great the Maglev effect, as well as full easy-to-follow instructions. It's simple to assemble, impressive to watch, and when it's not in use it looks great as a static model on a bookshelf or in your child's room.
The Maglev Magnetic Levitating Train Model is a fantastic way for kids to learn about the powers of Magnetic Levitation and comes beautifully gift boxed, making it a great gift for children intrigued by the wonders of science.
