1200001: Physics Solar Workshop Kit


The fun experiments you can do with this kit include building a solar tractor, converting it to a transport vehicle, and driving over obstacles. The second half of the manual provides detailed instructions so you can build eight solar-powered models: a solar car, platform elevator, drawbridge, windmill, crane, plane, truck, and more. There's also a section at the end to help you design your own projects!

Topics include how a solar cell works, how artificial light can power a solar cell, how battery power works, what load is and how it affects speed, how drive chains work, and more. Ages 10 & up.
