Have you ever wanted to make something using magnets? Now, it's your turn!

Magnets have long been used by innovators looking to improve efficiency or to come up with new solutions to old problems. Magnets are used in electric motors, medical technology and smartphones. Some engineers today are using magnets in their attempts to invent levitating cars and even levitating cities!

  • Today, harness the power of magnets to create unique and endlessly changeable sculptures. Design your dream robot, an abstract structure or something completely different.
