DESCRIPTION

Our most complex Solar Car & Invention Kit. You will be able to build solar cars and a wide variety of solar-electric machines.

Motor bushings slide onto the motor shaft, and into the hub-hole of any of the three sizes of pulleys or five sizes of gears, giving a wide selection of direct solar drives. Experiment with different gear ratios and pulley combinations, as well as different drive mechanisms. Worm gear drives toothed gears.

15 cm (6-inch) propeller can be used on fans, fan-cars, fan boats, and airplane and helicopter models.

Wooden dowel axles are held in place by metal screw eyes, and so that a shaft can be mounted at almost any angle onto almost anything.

Incorporate re-cycled materials. Kit parts can can be disassembled and used over and over again.

Available as a Class Pack of 15, plus tools and extra materials, in the SolRun Classroom Kit.
