Solar power technology in action!

Item #:


Parents' Choice Silver Award Winner 2015

  • By building five awesome models and conducting experiments with them, you will learn how solar cells transform light into electrical energy, and how motors and mechanical devices can optimize the work done by this energy
  • Experiment with motors, gears, and simple machines
  • Start with a simple helicopter model that converts sunlight into a rotating motion and demonstrates the basics of solar technology
  • Continue your experiments by constructing increasingly complex models: a solar-bot, a moon rover, and a stag beetle
  • Finally, build a cool praying mantis model that moves like an insect and is powered by a solar cell
  • models can also be powered by a battery, allowing operation in all lighting conditions
