Default Excellent suggestion for a simple Maglev train

However, you might need a pretty long train of magnets, plus, the track probably needs to have a hemispherical cross-section to ensure that there's magnetic repelling from the sides (to keep the train on the "track"). A computer CPU fan would do the trick of propelling it forward - good thinking.

PS: If you don't mind, I deleted the link to the magnet sales page, as we don't allow direct linking to online stores or links of a commercial nature in the forums. Thanks for your understanding.

Default maglev science project

My son would like to build a maglev train for a 5th grade science project. Is it easy to build the aluminum track and is it relatively easy to put a computer fan on back?

Cool Here's something

Every thing would be easy except putting a computer fan on the back. But if you sit and think for a while there would be nothing to it. Good Luck!!!!
