This kit may looks simple... but its not like any solar powered toy kit you've seen before. WARNING: This kit requires big kid toys, I mean tools!

As this happens, electrons (negative charged particles) are knocked from their atoms and start to flow in one direction to produce electricity. A strong artificial light source like a spot light can be used as an alternative to the sun.
