In one way or another, most forms of energy we use originate as energy from the sun. The Physics Solar Workshop explores the topic of solar energy by focusing on photovoltaic cells.

By building five awesome models and conducting experiments with them, you will learn how solar cells transform light into electrical energy, and how mechanical devices can optimize the work done by this energy. Start with a simple helicopter model that converts sunlight into a rotating motion and demonstrates the basics of solar technology. Continue your experiments by constructing increasingly complex models: a solar-bot, a moon rover, and a stag beetle. Finally, build a cool praying mantis model that moves like an insect and is powered by a solar cell. The models can also be powered by a battery, allowing operation in all lighting conditions.

Each kit includes 138 parts and a 48-page book of illustrated step-by-step instructions. Build five models, including a helicopter, solar-bot, moon rover, stag beetle, and praying mantis.

Recommended for ages 8 and up.
