Let’s work together to be a part of the larger conversation of energy efficiency
and celebrate environmental friendliness and sustainability. Empower your
children with the knowledge to make our world a better place to live. With that
concept, OWI has fabricated an intricate magnetic levitation train kit to engage
curiosity and awareness.
It’s amazing, without wheels, OWI’s Magnetic Levitation Express uses magnetic
levitation technology. Electromagnet, propulsion magnets and levitation magnets
are used to create propulsion. These scientifically placed magnetic strips are
built in the side of guide-way (included) to allow the Magnetic Levitation
Express to hover stably and run smoothly at high speeds. After building the
10.87 inch x 1.44 inch x 1.17 inch train kit and 29 inch x 17.72” x 1.34” rail
kit, the user can learn the basic principles of how magnets repel and attract
each other. It is ideal for a do-it-yourself science fair, after-school, or
summer workshop project with the bonus gift of learning electro-magnetic theory.
Experts believe that the retention of child’s learning experience is multiplied
if they can coordinate reading with actual hands on experience. With only 155
assembly parts, it’s a wonderful instrument for the beginner enthusiast 8 years
and up, and a gateway to ignite opportunities in fun-learning.
Wikikipedia says, “Shanghai has the first commercially operated high-speed
magnetic levitation line in the world. The top operational commercial speed of
this train is 431 km/h (268 mph), making it the world’s fastest train in regular
commercial service since it s opening in April 2004.” Magnetic Levitation Express
is the best choice for children to experiment how Maglev trains are built and
work. Speed, pollution-free, and quiet, Magnetic Levitation Express is tomorrow’s
technology in use today.
