Magnetic Levitation

Participants can see how strong magnetic poles can repel each other with these floating discs. As they press down on the disc, they can feel the magnets forcing the disc skyward. They also see how magnetic levitation can be used for such new technology as maglev trains.

A special message from COSI President and CEO Dr. Frederic Bertley.
