This kit allows you to build six different solar-powered models. The special solar panel in this kit consists of three solar cells and generates 1.5 volts of electricity in bright sunlight, like a AA battery. A unique cradle holds either the solar panel or the battery, allowing you to switch out the solar panel for a 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. This is a great kit for use in the classroom, and also is an unique science toy for the holidays or birthdays.

Features:

  • Build six different solar-powered models (locomotive, single-prop plane, bulldozer, helicopter, backhoe, and twin-rotor helicopter)
  • Solar panel is included to generate electricity (can also be used to recharge rechargeable AA batteries)
  • Full-color, 24-page instruction booklet gives clear and concise step-by-step instructions
  • Great kit for teaching about solar energy

My nephews LOVED this kit I got for them for their birthday. It was nice that they were able to build several solar-cell vehicles, versus only one. The manual was really helpful, too.
