Default Magnetic levitation

Hi
I am doing a project in my school fair on magnetic levitation. i am presenting it as a horror show.
A model atatched to a magnet is placed on atable with a coil under it. a hi current is passed to repel this magnet and it appears to rise.
pls giv a few recommendations and ideas on this
pls
this is urgent.
Ron

Default

i would be more scared of the high current unless you know what you are sure your safe...

Default High currents

Indeed, Catwood's got an excellent point. To obtan enough magnetic force, you'll probably need a lot of "juice" - very high currents - and you should be extremely careful when dealing with any form of electricity. Be sure to have a qualified adult accompany you - eg. your teacher/ an electrical engineer etc.

Thumbs up Self sustained magnetic levitation is not that far away

Researching perpetual motion using magnets and another static force I came across an article from Project Home 2010 where they are developing magnetic levitation that is self sustained by defeating power to weight ratios using electricity in a supercooled conductor powerful enough to produce a magnetic force field. The source describing how it works is at:
