Build more than 20 solar-powered models to learn how electrical energy from sunlight and solar cells can be converted into mechanical energy. Conduct experiments with the solar cell to see how different placement angles, different light levels, different sources of light and different loads affect its operation. Learn about solar power in a fun hands-on way.

This kit includes a unique single-piece solar motor that is composed of a photovoltaic cell and an electric motor joined together in one compact unit. With this solar motor you can power dozens of electric vehicles and devices. Build models including cars, trucks, planes, windmills, waterwheels, robots and other vehicles.

The 60 page full-colour experiment manual offers step-by-step illustrated instructions for the building projects and experiments. The building system is compatible with all of Thames & Kosmos' other Physics and Construction kits.

For ages 8+
