Maglev Engineering Design Challenge

To finish our unit on Magnetism we worked on an Engineering Design Challenge.  We had to use what we learned about magnets and design a maglev train which is a train that levitates above the track with our group.  We worked through the Design Process with our group - Ask, Imagine, Plan, Create, and Improve. We had many wonderful designs and many were so close to levitating and holding weight.   After testing, we  discussed what improvements we would make in order to meet the challenge.
Congratulations to the Blue Team, Daniel, Ashley & Joey,  who had a successful design!
