Picture this: you’re stranded on a desert island with none of the comforts of home. To survive, you must learn how to harness the power of the Sun and wind as well as tap the energy of other physical forces. This is the scenario that you’re prompted to imagine when you start to build the Power House.
The Power House provides an engaging introduction to regenerative energy sources while teaching basic concepts and principles in physical science. The kit focuses on the heat and light energy from the Sun, energy from the wind, as well as with electrochemical and plant energy. Learning how to transform and use these sources of energy will help you survive on the desert island.
With the Power House, you can build a model house complete with solar panels, windmill, greenhouse, and desalination system, build and operate an electric train, solar cooker, solar hot water tank, hygrometer, electric motor, power hoist, sail car, and more!
A great introduction to an attitude of conservation and renewable energy sources, the Thames & Kosmos Power House consists of more than 20 different fun, easy to follow and environmentally conscious projects.
