A talk and slide show showing the various steps in making a large superconducting magnet. These magnets are used in high energy physics to steer beams of particles like those used at the LHC in Cern. The talk briefly describes the steps from wire making to magnet assembly. This work is performed locally in the hills above Berkeley at Lawrence Berkeley Lab. There will be physical samples of the materials discussed for people to handle and look at.
