Physics Solar Workshop explores the topic of solar energy, focusing on photovoltaic cells. By building 12 models and conducting 30 experiments, you will learn how solar cells transform light into electrical energy, and how motors and mechanical devices can optimize the work done by this energy. You will build different types of vehicles and machines to demonstrate how gears can convert and transform power for different needs. There are 320 parts, which are also compatible with the other physics kits. The 64-page book offers illustrated instructions for the projects. This kit was developed with Greenpeace in Germany.
— This kit offers experimentation “with different mechanisms that allow you optimize the use of the solar power depending on specific applications. For example, you build vehicles with different gear ratios….In this way, it teaches kids how solar power can be harnessed and transformed for use in the real world,” president Ted McGuire of Thames & Kosmos told TDmonthly.
