Use the generated electricity to lift heavy objects or light a LED light, among many applications. Clean energy is the future, and young learners may be tomorrow's innovators.

Hydropower Renewable Energy Science Kit - Children can explore the power of water by building models and conducting experiments with them. Learn about how different devices are used to extract useful energy from moving water — from a waterwheel in a small stream to a giant turbine in a tidal power station.

Air & Water Power - Air and Water Power Kit allows you to build two different air-and-water powered systems: water-jet propelled cars and hydro-pneumo powered engines. Each kit contains 165 building pieces to construct 15 models including a truck, excavator, radar car, tank, antique car, helicopter, motorbike, backhoe, rocket car, forklift, roadster, propeller plane, grinder, and cutting machine.

Physics Solar Work Shop- The Physics Solar Workshop explores the topic of solar energy by focusing on photovoltaic cells. By building models and conducting experiments, you will learn how solar cells transform light into electrical energy, and how mechanical devices can optimize the work done by this energy. Build 12 working models, including a solar-powered tractor, truck, treaded vehicle, car, elevator, drawbridge, fan, airplane, mobile crane and construction crane.

Power House Kit - Explore eco-friendly living in the 21st century! Power House Kit features 100 household experiments with renewable energy sources, focusing on energy from the sun and wind.

Assemble the domed greenhouses complete with thermometers, ventilation and automatic watering. Grow beans, cress, and zinnia flowers, and learn how each plant has different needs.

Dinosaur Fossils Kit - The Dinosaur Fossils set lets your favorite young person learn about how fossils form, how paleontologists excavate them and how dinosaur bones are put together to form skeletons. Kids will model the process of fossilization by burying dinosaur bones in layers of plaster “rock” and carefully excavating using the tools and techniques of the professionals.

Little Lab Plant Science - With this Plant Science kit, you can do a variety of experiments to learn how plants germinate from seeds, how they grow, what they need, what they produce, and how their roots, stems, and leaves work.

Global Water Quality Kit - Learn how science can be used to give people around the world access to clean water! Each kit offers you the necessary tools to participate. Test water quality with pH analysis, build a water filter tower to clean dirty water, and experiment with water purification by evaporation.
