  • Build five models including a helicopter, solar-bot, moon rover, stag beetle, and praying mantis
  • Learn about harnessing and using solar power
  • Experiment with motors, gears, and simple machines

In one way or another, almost every form of energy we use originates as energy from the sun. Physics Solar Workshop explores the topic of solar energy, focusing on photovoltaic cells.

By building five awesome models and conducting experiments with them, learn how solar cells transform light into electrical energy, and how motors and 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.

Build models of: a solar-bot, or a moon rover, or 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 (sold separately), allowing operation in all lighting conditions.

Includes 138 parts, which are compatible with other Thames & Kosmos physics and engineering kits, and 48-page book with illustrated step-by-step instructions for the projects.
