Siddha’s Electro-Magnetic Train

A few weeks ago, Siddha entered a science competition in which he created and made his own electro-magnetic Train. Siddha’s invention was so fantastic that the judges awarded him the winner and awarded him with a medal! Today, Siddha brought in his electro-magnetic train to share his learning with the class. Well done Siddha!
