I was able to identify the problem with the first electromagnets easily. They were not very strong. The solution was to use insulated wire so more wire could be wrapped around the medal carrying more charge. I was able to build my project from a backwards design by researching and taking notes on my checklist. I was able to dream of the future where electromagnets will power rockets and make hover cars with similar technology to the maglev trains they now propel. I am satisfied with the results of my design and solutions. In the future, I would would have asked more questions when Mr Basso was there to help.
Thats pretty epic
