Kraftmakher, Yaakov – European Journal of Physics, 2008
An experiment and a demonstration concerning transport by magnetic levitation (Maglev) are described. The lift, drag and radial forces on a magnet placed over a rotating conducting disc are measured versus the rotation frequency. The experiment relates to important topics of electromagnetism and could be a useful addition to the undergraduate…

Hsu, Tung – Physics Teacher, 2014
A vehicle starts from rest at constant acceleration, then cruises at constant speed for a time. Next, it decelerates at a constant rate.… This and similar statements are common in elementary physics courses. Students are asked to graph the motion of the vehicle or find the velocity, acceleration, and distance traveled by the vehicle from a given…

Kye, Hannah – Science and Children, 2019
In this article, second graders learn the basics of engineering through an exploration of magnetic levitation (maglev) technology. The author designed and taught the lessons to a class of 26 students enrolled in a month-long summer science program. The maglev lessons took place over three mornings (15 minutes for the first lesson and 40 minutes…

Chapman, Angela; Rodriguez, Felicia D.; Pena, Carmen; Hinojosa, Erica; Morales, Lizbeth; Del Bosque, Valeria; Tijerina, Yakeline; Tarawneh, Constantine – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2020
Factors that influence the underrepresentation of females in STEM careers begin early in childhood when gender biases and stereotypes emerge. Stereotypes have a psychosocial effect on females that can lead to low self-efficacy and less interest in learning and pursuing STEM careers. This study investigated the effect of a STEM summer camp on K-12…

Bajpai, Shrish; Asif, Siddiqui Sajida; Akhtar, Syed Adnan – Comparative Professional Pedagogy, 2016
Out of the four fundamental interactions in nature, electromagnetics is one of them along with gravitation, strong interaction and weak interaction. The field of electromagnetics has made much of the modern age possible. Electromagnets are common in day-to-day appliances and are becoming more conventional as the need for technology increases.…

Campillo, Blanca; Pierson, Bo Hyun – Science and Children, 2014
During an eight-week series of investigations, a class of third-grade students learned how interactions between forces are used to advance technology in their world. This five-part forces and interaction unit was led by a guiding question: How does engineering and design work in the world, and how does it affect our lives? As they explored this…

Miryala, Santosh; Koblischka, M. R. – European Journal of Physics Education, 2014
The construction and operation of a prototype high-"Tc" superconducting train model is presented. The train is levitated by a melt-processed GdBa[subscript 2]Cu[subscript 3]O[subscript x] (Gd-123) superconducting material over a magnetic rail (track). The oval shaped track is constructed in S-N-S or PM3N configuration arranged on an iron…

McCartney, Robin Ward; Deroche, Sarah; Pontiff, Danielle – Science and Children, 2008
Have you ever heard of a Maglev train? Who would be crazy enough to think that exploring how a high-tech train little known in the United States works with a group of fourth-grade students would yield understandings about the properties of magnetism, force and motion, and inquiry science? Fortunately, the authors--a college methods professor and…

Williamson, Jacob – Tech Directions, 2007
Each year, students in Kittanning Senior High School's Principles of Technology (POT) classes have a design challenge, usually beginning with CO2-powered or Maglev-powered vehicles and progressing to such challenges as soap-box cars or radio-controlled airplanes. The author's recent POT class challenged them with the most exciting challenge yet:…
