The all new Physics Solar Workshop Kit V2.0 provides an incredibly engaging way to harness solar energy to power and experiment with mechanical models. You will learn how solar cells transform the Sun's energy into electricity to power a helicopter, solar-bot, moon rover, stag beetle, and praying mantis model that you build yourself. The 48 pp. manual explains the basics of solar technology, guides you through building the models in increasing complexity, and provides 10 experiments to develop a deeper understanding of solar energy and its applications. This is a great way to introduce kids to both alternative solar energy and engineering principles through hands-on learning. You provide 2 rechargeable AA batteries..
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.
Note: The solar cells in this kit are designed to work in full sunlight. Batteries can be used to power and experiment with the models indoors.
