There are a variety of solar vehicles that exist in the world today. For example, the development of a practical-use solar-powered car has been an engineering goal since the 1980s. One way this goal is trying to be reached is through the World Solar Challenge---it is a bi-annual solar car race in which teams from universities and private businesses from around the world race across Australia. Another example is solar-powered boats. The first practical-use solar-powered boat was made in England in 1975, and by 1995, passenger boats that incorporated solar panels began appearing. Now they are used extensively, which is really awesome! Solar energy can be used in a huge variety of ways—and one more way has just appeared. Use the power of the sun to get this aggressive inch worm to attack! A great example of a kit to use for lessons on alternative energy resources, this worm will be all the rage in the science class or for the science-minded child at home! With a detailed list of parts and a helpful pictorial guide to help you put it together, this is a great kit for those who haven’t had a lot of experience putting models or kits together!
