SOLAR MECHANICS – STEM Science Discovery Kit
By Thames & Kosmos, USA
The 21 Century focus. For young leaders of the future.
Our children are gifted with the power to invent and achieve amazing technological feats. Most of all, it’s through creative play that they learn how to exploit these skills.
Ever wondered what ‘clean, renewable energy’ is all about? And how the ‘free’ energy from the sun’s rays collected in our roof-top solar cells is actually converted into power for the machines in our homes? Also what this key energy technology of the future will be like? Well, here are real and practical lessons, with this award-winning Solar Mechanics kit.
Solar energy now increasingly powers a variety of advanced devices. But in future, due to technological advances in power storage (eg. batteries), solar energy will transform countless devices that we already use today. Especially relevant, they range from smartphones and air-conditioners to cars, airplanes and medical sciences. These are everyday things to the extraordinary.
You can power dozens of electric vehicles and devices with this solar unit. Furthermore, build more than 20 solar-powered models including cars, trucks, planes, windmills, waterwheels, robots, and other devices.
As a result learn:
• the use of solar power in a fun, hands-on way
• most of all, how solar cells convert energy from sunlight into mechanical energy
• in addition, conduct experiments with the solar cell to see how different placement angles, different light levels, different sources of light, and different loads affect its operation.
The SOLAR MECHANICS – STEM Science Discovery kit includes:
• a unique photo-voltaic cell and electronic motor joined together in one compact unit.
• also a 60-page, full-colour experiment manual. It provides step-by-step illustrated instructions for the building projects and experiments.
