National Railway Museum

Magnetic Maze

You are here:

Explore magnetism by designing and building your own bottle-sized railway network.

Discover the power of magnets and learn how they work in this fun activity. Design and build your own bottle-sized railway network, then put it to the test by using a magnet to guide a coin along the tracks. You can take your prototype home with you in case further testing is required.

During this activity there will be plenty of opportunities to think and talk about how magnetism works and why magnets only attract certain materials.
