Science, Discovery and Exploration

Kids come to us filled with questions... but without instruction manuals for the answers! Sometimes it's nice to let them figure it out themselves. Science experiments help them delve deep into their questions and come back out knowing more than they ever thought possible. (And certainly more than we ever could have told them!)

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 the Earths' 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. Physics Solar Workshop 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. There are 320 parts, which are also compatible with the other kits in our Physics line. The 64-page book offers illustrated instructions for the projects. Developed with Greenpeace; in Germany.

Build 12 models, including a solar-powered tractor, truck, treaded vehicle, car, elevator, drawbridge, fan, airplane, mobile crane and construction crane. Learn about harnessing and using solar power and about motors and simple machines.

Build your own working hydraulic machine!

Using clear syringes and coloured liquid (no needles included), this building kit clearly demonstrates the simplicity of how hydraulics make a mini excavator work. Excavators are widely used on construction sites to dig holes. There are a wide variety of styles available and this model uses the same principles to move the arms as the real excavators do! Once its build you can use it to lift a pencil! This is a fun and different toy that will stimulate your mind as you have fun with basic hydraulic mechanics. All parts and instructions are included.

Once assembled, this mini excavator model measures approximately 11.8" high.

Build 3 working robots using 3 different electronic circuits and 3 different insect-shaped bodies! The radar-controlled "guide" robot detects objects using infra red rays, the "wake-up" robot is sensitive to light and the "come to me" robot is operated by any TV remote control! A separate circuit and body are supplied for each robot: just fix the selected circuit onto the robot base and add the corresponding transparent body - no soldering required! Also includes a detailed colour manual with instructions and explanations of how robots work.

Each robot measures approximately 6" long.

Requires 2 AA batteries (NOT INCLUDED).
