Eco-Battery Vehicles Experiment Kit

By Thames & Kosmos

With this educational Eco-Battery Vehicles experiment kit, you and your kids will build eco-friendly, battery-powered vehicles! You will learn about electrochemical cells and battery electric vehicles (BEV's). The battery used for the vehicle is a metal-air electrochemical cell, which is a battery that is widely used in small scale devices. Because the battery does not use any harmful chemicals, it is ideal for demonstrating battery technology. It uses only magnesium plates, salt water, and the oxygen in the air to generate electricity. With this kit, you and your children can construct 22 different models that will be powered with this special battery. The different models include: Taxi, Roadster, Ferris Wheel, Propeller Plane, and more! To operate the models without the metal-air cell, two 1.5-volt AA batteries, or two 1.2-volt AA rechargeable batteries are required (not included). The 22 models are explained step-by-step in the 64-page, full-color manual. For ages 10 and up.
