this amazing solar science kit from owi gives children the opportunity to build five surprisingly fast vehicles and a recharging station that can transform from station mode to truck mode. put the recharging station into truck mode to charge the included micro battery from 2 aaa batteries, or keep it in station mode to recharge using the power of the sun. if the sun doesn’t cooperate, it is easy to convert to truck mode, but kids can also use a halogen lamp to put power through the solar panel. children who love to build will enjoy the snap together assembly of each vehicle, while everybody will be excited to see how fast each vehicle can actually travel.
construction doesn’t require any paint or glue. every piece snaps easily together, the molded plastic pieces are already colored, and there is even a sheet of peel and stick decals for finishing each solar powered vehicle. instructions include steps to make a ramp out of two of the molded plastic pieces and a section of the box, so once the concept car and concept racer are assembled, kids can see how much air they can get off the ramp. the dump truck and bulldozer may not be as flashy on the ramp, but they can have their wheels facing straight forward or pivoted to go in circles. they are also perfect for crashing through roadblocks your kids make. when the rechargeable solar transformers lose their power, they can be quickly recharged to run another 50-80 seconds.
