ITEM #: KIT-18506
PRICE: $49.95

Resource Description
SOLAR POWER, Photovoltaic Energized Vehicles. Build your own solar-powered models and discover how solar cells generate electricity from light. Six solar powered models include a locomotive, single-prop plane, bulldozer, helicopter, backhoe, and twin-rotor helicopter. The special solar panel in this kit consists of three solar cells and generates 1.5 volts of electricity in bright sunlight. A unique cradle holds either the solar panel or a battery, allowing you to switch out the solar panel for an AA battery (not included), depending on the strength of sunlight. You can even use the solar panel to charge up your own rechargeable AA batteries. The solar panel is positionable, so you can maximize its exposure to the Sun to generate the most power. The 24-page color instruction book included in this kit gives step-by-step instructions for assembling the six model vehicles. The 177 building pieces in this set are compatible with those in the Physics, Wind Power, and Hydropower kits also on this page. Ages 8 and up. #KIT-18506.
