    "MAGLEV Contest"

    Wednesday, March 20, 2013, 10 am
    Brookhaven Center

    Hosted by: Menzel Smith-Jones / Alexander Pulecio

    In this contest, you will learn about MAGLEV technology and use math, science, and technology principles to optimize the design of a MAGLEV vehicle. Long Island, like so many areas, has traffic congestion problems. Many experts believe the best way to solve this problem is to design new transportation systems. One approach is to develop "MAGLEV" vehicles which float over a fixed track, supported (levitated) and driven by magnetic fields. This is like flying with lift provided by magnets instead of wings.
