The geek squad, who brought to you the beloved T3 Transforming Solar Robot, has dusted off their labs coats and goggles to concoct their latest triumph…T4 Transforming Solar Robot. “T4” not only has more transformations but also comes equipped with larger parts, meaning that your younger child does not have to be excluded from partaking in some high quality robot fun.

“T4” is completely solar-powered so you never need to buy batteries. Not only will “T4” provide your child with a new understanding of solar power as a source of renewable energy, but will also get your kids outdoors for some wholesome fun in the sun. This kit gives your child the option to easily transform between one of four different modes: Robot – walking legs as well as moving wheels, Insecta – 6 walking legs as well as moving jaws, T-Rex - 2 walking legs and moving jaws, and Drill Vehicle – similar to a miner’s driller/drilling bit and moving wheels. If your children are glued to smart-phones, give them an opportunity to acquire solar power knowledge, learn about mechanical transmissions, and get them outside to play. Amazingly, you might find yourself engaged in conversation with your child, thanks to their newly acquired “expertise”!

Requires diagonal cutter for assembly (not included).

Learn about renewable resources while you build a wind-powered generator to energize your electric vehicle and charge your rechargeable batteries!

The wind spins the turbine, which turns an electric generator, which in turn charges your rechargeable AA batteries (not included). You can then use those wind-charged batteries to power the model vehicles you build. The six models include a glider, sail car, jet car, tractor, race car, or tricycle.

This kit includes two styles of wind turbine blades and a gearbox with three different gear ratios for experiments. You can adjust the angle and number of wind turbine blades to make best use of the wind, to make the LED light up brightly, and to charge the rechargeable battery as fast as possible.

A great gift for young scientists who are ready for a hands-on way of learning about wind energy!

Explore this amazing, free source of renewable energy and store the electricity you generate for use in practical applications!

Requires 1 rechargable AA battery (not included.)
