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.

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

You will build different types of vehicles and machines to demonstrate how gears can convert and transform power for different needs, including a solar-powered tractor, truck, treaded vehicle, car, elevator, drawbridge, fan, airplane, mobile crane and construction crane. There are 320 parts which are also compatible with other Thames & Kosmos Physics kits.

The 64-page manual offers illustrated instructions for the projects! Developed with Greenpeace® in Germany. A Parent's Choice Silver Award Winner! For ages 8 and older.

Materials: Plastic, Solar Panel.
