QTY:
 

A simple and highly affordable miniature motorized fan car kit that includes everything you need (aside from soldering equipment) to build a small but speedy vehicle propelled by the wind force generated by either a pink or blue fan attached to a small motor, which is in turn powered by two AA batteries housed in a holder secured to the car. The kit constitutes an excellent introduction to mechanical and electrical concepts for young learners, presenting a relatively short task rendered challenging mostly by virtue of the size of the building materials. Builders will develop their fine motor skills, learning the basics of how vehicles work, garnering confidence and self-reliance as they construct a fun toy with guidance from an instruction sheet detailed with step-by-step images and directions. And unlike other kits, soldering is optional; it yields a more secure connection from battery holder to switch, but soldering is in no way necessary for ensuring the functioning of the vehicle. In fact, even the switch itself is optional; the battery holder can be attached directly to the motor if you prefer.  Makes a fun and unique stocking stuffer, and can be used as the basis for a wide variety of science fair projects. Once the car is built, just flip the switch and watch as the car accelerates forward on force of wind alone! Make it a family project and have your cars race!

Features:

  • Build a small car powered by battery holder, electric motor, and fan
  • Both blue and pink propellers included
  • Includes all necessary parts, including a small screwdriver!
  • Extra screws and nuts included in case some go missing
  • Develop fine motor skills, confidence and self-reliance in young kids
  • Battery holder can be secured to switch w/o soldering, or attached directly to motor
  • Great for use in various science fair projects
  • Car measures 3.5" x 3" x 2.5" when built

Customer Reviews


5 star rating  Car kit review
Julian from New York, N.Y.
Great kit. Great fun. Thanks!

5 star rating  Fan DIY Micro Car Kit directions
M. Greene from Oregon
The fan car assembly instructions included in the kit do not mention the type of batteries needed or the need for a small phillips screwdriver. I found the info. on your web site description of the car. Also, if the wires are not soldered, do they need to be stripped at the ends for attachment. These are directions that should be included.
