Should we really let the sun just sit somewhere up there in space without doing anything useful? No, build a small solar robot instead. And let the sun drive it!
In all honesty: It’s hardly news to anyone in these times that the big fiery ball we call the sun is a pretty powerful source of energy. Nevertheless, it has been neglected somewhat because we have been so busy splitting atoms and burning rock. It is sad.
But now you have a simple and clever way – preferably but not necessarily in the company of a child – to test what power the sun shares with us just by sitting up there in the sky and shining. With a simple solar robot kit of parts you click together, you can choose to build:
- A solar drummer robot!
- A solar street roller!
- A solar flying bird!
- A solar bottle yacht!
- A solar walking robot!
- A solar CD Racer!
And then – preferably but not necessarily in the company of a child – be delighted by how the little solar robot chugs forward with our friend the sun as its only source of power.
No tools are required for the 6 in 1 solar kit and of course no batteries are included, because batteries are not required when the sun is on your side. And even when the sun is not on your side, the robots will always work if you have a powerful enough lamp, for example a 50 watt halogen lamp.
