As Seen in 122: Faraday Trains AP Physics 2

In Mrs. Rods room on the science and math floor, the AP Physics 2 students were hard at work building electromagnetic, Faraday trains. The goal of this was to have the smoothest running train and the most aesthetically pleasing train. The winners were Jake Alokones and Zach Grace, but it was a close second by Josiah Bedford and Matt Purnell.

The students learned how magnets and electricity work together. In the end, the trains took a long time to build, but learning the physics behind how the trains worked was invaluable. The pictures of the trains are below.
