If your child likes to conduct science experiments, this Solar Power Photovoltaic Energized Vehicles lab is the perfect activity.
This kit contains 177 pieces that will allow kids to build six different solar-powered models that demonstrate how solar cells generate electricity in bright sunlight.
A 24-page fully-illustrated manual is included for additional guidance and support. Children will enjoy hours of entertainment building vehicles such as a helicopter, backhoe, steam locomotive and more.
The two special solar panels in the kit consist of three solar cells. When linked together in a series, they generate up to 1.5 volts of electricity in bright sunlight. This is the equivalent of two AA batteries!
This kit teaches the basic concepts in solar energy such as photovoltaics and circuits, as well as problem solving and creative thinking.
This lab is suggested for kids ages 8 and up.
