Solar Mechanics Construction Kit
by Thames & Kosmos
You can build more than 20 solar-powered models and learn about how solar cells convert energy from sunlight into mechanical energy at the same time! Perform different experiments with the solar cell to find out how different placement angles, different light levels, different sources of light, and different loads affect its operation. This kit enables kids to learn about solar power in a fun, hands-on way! Power your creations with the included single-piece solar motor that is composed of a photovoltaic cell and an electric motor joined together in one compact unit. Power all over your electric vehicles and devices. Build your own cars, trucks, planes, machines, and more!
Twenty experiments with a 60-page, full color manual. For ages 8 and up.
