These kits teach students how solar cells convert energy from sunlight into electricity. Students construct solar-electric models with a motor module that can be powered by a solar cell or batteries. With the Solar Car, build a race car that drives across the floor, a helicopter with spinning rotor blades, a windmill with spinning turbine, a jet plane, and a gyrocopter. The Solar Boat allows students to construct a boat, a solar catamaran driven by a fan boat-like propeller, a windmill, airplane model, spaceship model, fan, and a rocket. Includes a 32 page, full-color, instruction book. Requires one AAA battery not included.
