Construct a solar-electric boat and five additional models using an innovative motor module that can be powered by a solar cell or a battery. Construct all six models: a catamaran, a windmill, an airplane model, a spaceship model, a solar fan, and a rocket model. Learn about solar cells and how they convert energy from sunlight into electricity to drive the motor and move the models that you construct. To operate your models on battery power, one AAA battery is needed.
