Build more than 20 solar-powered models to learn abouthow solar cells convert energy from sunlight into mechanical energy. Conduct experiments with the solar cell to see how different placementangles, different light levels, different sources of light, and different loadsaffect its operation. Learn about solar power in a fun, hands-on way!
The Solar Mechanics Kit includes a unique single-piecesolar motor that is composed of a photovoltaic cell and an electric motorjoined together in one compact unit. With this solar motor, you can powerdozens of electric vehicles and devices. Build models including cars,trucks, planes, windmills, waterwheels, robots, and other vehicles.
The 60-page, full-color experiment manual offersstep-by-step illustrated instructions for the building projects andexperiments. The building system is compatible with all of our otherPhysics and Construction kits.
