Superconductors are the heart of today's particle detectors and accelerators, and much effort is put into the development of the existing technology. We consider superconductivity an interesting topic for the physics classroom, because it allows students to apply their knowledge about classical conductors, induction, and quantum mechanics in a modern physics topic. Two master students from Germany developed the superconductivity workshop for S'Cool LAB. Below, you will find their master thesis including instructions how to build a magnetic track for a leviatting superconductor. Unfortunately, both thesis are only in German. We are currently working on a short version in English.
