Encourage children to build solar-powered mechanisms of their own design, to build onto recycled items, or to solarize other toys. Pursue STEM objectives with these solar-powered teaching toys.
All kits (see list at left) come with 1.0 volt, 1.5 volt or 2.0 volt x 500 mAmp solar panels (with alligator clip test leads attached), solar motors, instruction sets with techniques and ideas, and all necessary materials.
Our 1.5 volt x 500 mAmp solar panel replaces exactly a dry cell battery, and is available with an AA battery holder to solar-charge.
For instructors we offer SunnySide Up Classroom 10-Packs and Solrun Solar-Electric Machines Classroom Kits. Students can build their own solar cars, or solar-electric machines that run on light.
