Thames & Kosmos Solar Mechanics | Science Experiment Kit | Build 20 Models Powered by The Sun | Ages 8-12+ | 60 Page Full Color Stem Manual | Parents’ Choice Gold Award Winner

Build more than 20 solar-powered models to learn about how solar cells convert energy from sunlight 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-color experiment manual offers step-by-step illustrated instructions for the building projects and experiments. The building system is compatible with all of our other physics and construction kits.

  1. LOVE this one My almost 9 year-old son uses this every day. He jumps out of bed, finds the sunniest spot in the house (the windows facing east, he’s learned) and tries out his newest creation – usually not something out of the direction book. Then, when the sun is directly overhead, he makes something else to try out in the west windows in the afternoon. Before bed, he will often make a new configuration to try out the next morning. I have learned a bit about solar power and my son has learned a lot. He…

  2. Worth every penny for the educational value This toy set far exceeded my expectations. My kids desperately needed something to boost their brainpower and end the summer boredom. I bought two solar power building sets: the OWI 14-in-One solar robotics one and this mechanical one. The focus of this set is mechanics. It taught my 6-yr-old child so much about how to use gears and general mechanical structure. I do not think he learned very much about solar energy other than how the directness and strength of light made changes in the power…
