      Thames & Kosmos Solar Mechanics

      Discover the power of the sun with this Thames & Kosmos Solar Mechanics Experiment Kit!

      Build a racecar, excavator, solar fan, helicopter, and much more as you explore the power of the sun. This kit not only demonstrates how solar power can be turned into electricity but it also explains how gears work, what a driver gear is, and teaches about energy, torque, transmission, and more. The instructions tell how to build 10 different models that use a solar cell and motor, as well as provide information on how solar cells work, a history of solar cell technology, and pictures of real life solar vehicles.

      You can experiment with your solar cell outside or inside using a fluorescent or incandescent bulb. Includes over 50 building pieces. You provide some items to complete the experiments, including a desk lamp or sunlight.
