During July 2018, a group of top high school Spanish students attended a summer scientific camp at the University of Seville. The topic of the project was magnetic levitation. During the one-week-long stay, the students investigated several possible ways of achieving stable levitation. These included diamagnetic levitation, use of superconductors, induced current levitation, and the toy Levitron®. The experiments were accompanied by their corresponding conceptual and theoretical explanations.
