Central Japan Railway is a proud sponsor of FutureFest™ — where kids can spark their imagination and celebrate our collective power to invent the future! This free family festival, one of the DC region’s largest, has it all: Real fun. Real tools. Real skills for the future.

Come discover the future of transportation with a first-hand look at the technology behind Japan’s super-fast, Super Conducting Magnetic Levitation (SC-Maglev) trains. These commuter trains can travel up to 313 miles per hour, making them the fastest in the world.

At the Central Japan Railway exhibit, visitors will experience magnetic repulsion — the technology that makes Maglev trains levitate above their tracks — through working miniature SC-Maglev models and floating toys. Plus, see video of these super high-speed trains in action.

FutureFest™, brought to you by KID Museum in partnership with Montgomery County and Fund for Montgomery, takes place Sunday, September 15, 12-5pm at Veterans Plaza and the Silver Spring Civic Center — One Veterans Place, Silver Spring MD 20910. Learn more at: kid-museum.org/futurefest
