[US] Northeast Maglev launches STEAM enrichment program

Northeast Maglev launches STEAM enrichment program
Northeast Maglev teamed up with Restoring Inner-City Hope (RICH) to launch the program, hosting third-, fourth- and fifth-grade students at the RICH headquarters in the south Baltimore neighborhood of Cherry Hill. The event was part of Northeast Maglev’s celebration of National Education Month, which is observed every November.

Over two hours, students learn about and experimented with a few of the scientific and technological concepts that enable the superconducting Maglev train to levitate and reach high speeds.

The curriculum explains magnetic fields, friction, and levitation through various hands-on experiments. It also includes a demonstration involving liquid nitrogen that shows students the relationship between ultra-low temperatures and superconductivity. Finally, students work in teams to construct and design a miniature Maglev to race down a magnetic track, empowering them to apply their new knowledge on the spot.

They would learn more developing a real SC maglev container train in the real world.
