Graduate student Nathan Bishop presents the "diamagnetic levitator" demonstration to four middle school students.

The Shayegan research group's presentation of basic E&M principles was very well recieved. Hands-on demos included simple motors, generators, conversion between chemical, mechanical, and light energy, magnetic braking, and the diamagnetic levitator.
