Max is a year 11 who chose to investigate levitation devices for his year 12 Research Project.
Max chose to build a levitation device and it was a cause for celebration when he started zoning in on the right calibration and weight settings. The video below shows the weight suspended below the electro-magnet (the black strip below is just black insulation tape to stop the weight moving out of alignment). Max is hoping with further work and fine tuning, the tape will no longer be necessary.
The first part of completing Research Project is coming to a close with student’s folios of their research due for submission to teachers at the end of this week.
