Green Science Solar Mechanics
Discover the power of clean solar energy while building a device that can be used as a fan to keep you cool in the sun. If you're not in the mood for that, you can modify it to create a vibrating robot that shimmies and shakes across the floor, or an illusion spinner that turns the Sun's rays into a brilliant visual wonder.
The solar cell converts light energy into electrical energy, which in turn powers a whole range of fun components. Interchange the pieces to make at least half a dozen different mechanical devices, all powered by the Sun!
This kit is an excellent introduction to how solar energy can be used to power all kinds of fun and interesting things. The different options also show how to make many different mechanical devices from just a few components. The best part? No batteries required!
