Observe the power of the Sun first-hand
Make the principles of solar power come alive for young scientists. Learn about how solar cells convert energy from sunlight into mechanical energy with this kit’s unique single-piece solar motor, composed of a photovoltaic cell and an electric motor.
You’ll build and power more than 20 solar-powered models, including cars, trucks, planes, windmills, waterwheels, robots, and other vehicles. Use them to experiment with the solar cell and observe how different placement angles, different light levels, different sources of light, and different loads affect its operation.
Includes solar cell, 20 experiments, and step-by-step instructions.
Recommended for ages 8+.
