Also known as the Eddy Current Drag Kit. Drop the super magnet onto the thick copper bar and explain its cushioned fall, drag non-magnetic metal bars without the magnet touching them and explain why the magnet veers unexpectedly when it nears the edges as it rolls down the sloping copper bar.

This kit demonstrates how the brakes work on Dreamworld’s Tower of Terror ride. Delivers the WOW factor when teaching Newtons, Faradays or Lenz’s Laws.
