Michael Cooke founded SunWind Solar Industries Inc. in 1998 to provide solar energy information and to be a source of “hands-on” solar energy kits for children. SunWind kits encourage children to explore simple mechanics while building solar-electric machines of their own design.
“About our solar panels -By far the best that I have found”
“Your cars are incredible, they are so much fun and are a really effective way to show how an electric circuit works with a solar panel as the power source.”
“I am very pleased with the materials and have been showing the panels and motor to others already their reactions are consistently one of being amazed.”
“I’ve always appreciated how much your kits bring out the “maker” in kids! … I’m over the moon that we will get to be using them.”
“The kids LOVED these kits!”
Junior High School teacher in Ohio
“I really appreciate your concern with quality. It will ultimately make a better experience for our students. Thanks again!”
“The solar cars worked GREAT. This activity was a huge hit with the campers and we were able to generate some excellent discussion and learning about alternative energy, climate change, etc, etc.”
About our customer support: “Thank you so much for using your valuable time to help us even though we were unprepared. You do not know how much of a difference you made in our project. We think that your products are FABULOUS!!”
The Solar Team
“Hi…just want to let you know that the school project was a big success! He got an A+ on it… especially because it was an original idea.”
The car kits did arrive in time. The workshop was a hit! Kids had a great time assembling the kits with their parents. After the workshop, we brought the cars outside and the kids experimented with adjusting the solar panels and changing the direction of the car. It was great to watch their young minds at work! Thanks for a great product!
“We had our *Bring Your Child To Work Day* last week. The kids (ages 7 – 13) had a great time learning about solar power and building their cars. Hearing the younger kids squeal with excitement as their cars began to move on the patio was priceless. Having the spare parts in the kits was helpful too. Overall the kits were GREAT!”
“These kits are a lot more hands-on than the last group I purchased and I am sure the students will enjoy the project quite a lot more.”
On building a solar boat: My friends are amazed at the power and motor speed of solar.
“I just wanted to send a thank you for the fast shipping of the solar car kit I ordered. It is a blessing to get good value and fast service.”
“By the way, I really appreciate your well designed SolGear kits – they are proving very useful with our education programs teaching solar PV and electric motor efficiency.”
