Rated 4 out of 5 by from My 8-year old son and I worked on it together. The only problem was the pictures were so small we had a hard time figuring out which of the similar-looking pieces we were supposed to use.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Putting it together was fine, but the solar panel barely made it move. I am returning it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We bought this for a science project and it worked out fabulously!! There's lots of information in the book that comes with the kit and my 10 year old was able to put the kit together himself. Great product for education with the use of a simple volt meter!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My ten year old son is into gadgets and this was right up his alley. It was pretty easy for him to follow the instructions and put things together. My only negative is that we wish the motor was a bit stronger to propel these things over carpet. Kind of slow unless on tile or wood flooring.
