In one way or another, almost every form of energy we use originates as energy from the Sun. Solar energy directly powers photovoltaic cells and thermal collectors. Indirectly, we get power from plants grown by the Sun, oceans heated by the Sun, and Earth's weather systems sustained by the Sun. Even the energy stored in fossil fuels originated as energy from the Sun, captured by plants and animals millions of years ago.

Our line of solar kits can teach the basic principles of solar power, locomotion, and mechanical drive systems.



   Solar Astronaut Kit


Learn how a solar module or single AA battery can power a walking robot. The Solar Astronaut Kit illustrates how an automatic transmission and motors work together to actuate the legs. Slide switch changes from solar to battery power. Soldering is not required.

Comes with everything you need including motor, gearbox, solar cell, and easy to follow instructions. Requires basic hand tools to assemble.



Non Soldering Kit   $17.95  




   Solar Inch Worm Kit

Solar Inch Worm KitThis kit is a great introduction to mechanical gear and motor operation. Can be powered via solar cell or one AA battery. Power is selected by a switch. Includes all parts to build a working Solar Inch Worm. Soldering is not required.

Comes with everything you need including motor, gearbox, solar cell, and easy to follow instructions. Requires basic hand tools to assemble. Direct Sunlight is needed for solar operation. Use an AA battery for use indoors or on cloudy days.

Non Soldering Kit   $17.95  



   Solar F1 Race Car Kit

Solar F1 Race CarThe Solar F1 Race car kit illustrates how the power of the sun (or a bright lamp) can be used to propel a solar racer. You can switch to a single AA battery on those cloudy days. Soldering is not required.

Comes with everything you need including motor, gearbox, solar cell, and easy to follow instructions. Requires basic hand tools to assemble. Order two and stage some real solar races!

Non Soldering Kit   $17.95  



   Triple Action Solar Car Kit

Sleek, powerful, unearthly, and very cool... this futuristic solar car is an exciting way to demonstrate the use of alternative energy. It features an aerodynamic sports car design, a 4-wheel chassis, a powerful 1.4 volt, 350mA solar cell (included) and transparent plastic body that can be painted or left clear to display the car's inner mechanical construction. The steerable front axle, rear wheel and adjustable (directional/angle) solar panel mount are all independent parts, allowing for separate solar projects.

The Triple Action Solar Car kit is also convertible: (1) The two-way battery source allows for battery or solar power; (2) The kit design is an aerodynamic racer or a tractor, and; (3) It features a multi-speed transmission. This is a marvelous educational science project for ages 9 and up.


Body Size: 14.5 x 22.5 x 4.5cm.
Power Source:
1) Solar Cell Battery - Output Power / 1.4V - 350mA (max)
2) Dry Cell Battery - "AA" x 1 pc (not included)




   6 in 1 Educational Solar Kit

The 6 in 1 Educational Solar Kit teaches children the benefits of solar energy while they create toys that are fun to play with and requires no batteries. This kit is an excellent beginner building kit designed to teach how solar power is used to drive a small motor. Children use the 33 snap together parts (no tools required) to build six different working models including an airboat, windmill, puppy, and two different planes.

It's very inexpensive for individuals or groups. Includes clear easy to follow instructions that motivate students to learn about solar energy. This is a great self-contained set of projects for boys or girls that challenges young people to be technically precise with miniature parts. It also teaches students to follow precise visual diagrams while having hours of fun experimenting with solar energy.

Assembled Size: ( L x W x H / mm):
- Airboat: 121 x 61 x 86
- Windmill: 154x 153 x239
- Puppy: 68 x 46 x 64
- Car: 70 x 54 x 34
- Plane: 154 x 61 x 94
- Revolving plane: 218 x 61 x 166

Non Soldering Kit   $16.95  



   Physics Solar Workshop

The Physics Solar Workshop explores the topic of solar energy, focusing on photovoltaic cells. By building 12 models and conducting 30 experiments, kids will learn how solar cells transform light into electrical energy, and how motors and mechanical devices can optimize the work done by this energy.

Build 12 models, including solar-powered tractor,  truck,  treaded vehicle, car, elevator, drawbridge, fan, airplane, mobile crane and construction crane. The Solar Workshop demonstrates how gears can convert and transform solar power for different needs. There are 320 parts. The 64-page book offers illustrated instructions for the projects. Ages 8 and up
