Corporate Partner Corner

MACo's Bronze Corporate Partner, Northeast Maglev , recently entered a partnership with the B&O Railroad to showcase past, present, and future innovation and technology in the railroad industry.

The B&O Railroad Museum today announced it has entered into a partnership to expand educational programming with Northeast Maglev, the company bringing the Superconducting Maglev (SCMAGLEV) high-speed train project to the Northeast Corridor. As part of the B&O's dedication to provide cutting-edge educational experiences to children and adults alike, the Museum and Northeast Maglev will work together to offer programming to showcase innovation and technology in railroading—past, present and future.

New educational activities will feature interactive and hands-on opportunities to learn about science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) through the lens of railroad technology. Workshops will focus on the science behind magnetic levitation with fun experiments including building a maglev train, moving a battery through wire coil, and creating the visualization of magnetic fields.

"Northeast Maglev's support provides additional resources to the B&O Railroad Museum's education department as well as the opportunity to share some of our exciting innovations in trains and rail transportation right where it all began nearly two centuries ago," said Wayne Rogers, Chairman and CEO of Northeast Maglev. "The B&O Railroad Museum is a critical asset for Baltimore City and our region, and we are thrilled to help its staff deliver on their mission to broaden the public's understanding of the railroad industry's significance in America, and its very bright future right here in the Northeast Corridor."
