A simple and highly affordable miniature solar car kit that includes everything you need (aside from soldering equipment) to build a small but speedy vehicle powered solely by the strength of the sun.  The kit constitues an excellent introduction to solar energy 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.  

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 place it in the sun and the rays picked up by the solar cell will cause the motor to drive the wheels automatically.  Make it a family project and have your cars race!  

Features:

  • Build a small car powered by solar cell and electric motor
  • Includes all the parts necessary (small philips screwdriver is required - NOT included.)
  • Develop fine motor skills, confidence and self-reliance in young kids
  • Solar cell is already soldered to the motor
  • Great for use in various science fair projects
  • Car measures 3.25" x 2.5" x 1.25" when built

Customer Reviews


5 star rating  Solar DIY Micro Car Kit
Jennifer Fitzpatrick from Auburn Hills, MI
Product worked as designed. Clear instructions in English. Received in a timely manner. Ordered for kids of many ages for Bring Your Kid to Work Day. Thank you!

5 star rating  Awesome project!
Tracy L. from Sacramento, CA
It took about 45mins to put together (pretty easy following the included instructions). My kids loved it and played with these in the sun for several days. They run pretty fast in the full sun. I bought more for birthday and Christmas gifts for all of my nieces and nephews. Price is great.

3 star rating  Needs strong sun to operate
Patricia Blauner from Amherst MA, USA
I ordered 50 of these as goodies to distribute at a high school engineering competition. I just put a few together to check them out and found that although the assembly instructions and fit were excellent (I was glad to find they were pre-soldered!), they require pretty intense sunlight to operate. Intense artificial light doesn't do it, direct sun through a window didn't do it (it is winter in New England), but they do outside when the sun is reasonably high. I fear the students will be pretty disappointed if its a cloudy day.
