    What People Are Saying

    Not 100% Accurate

  • We bought this science kit for my 2nd grader to use for his science fair project. I was disappointed that one of the experiments is not accurate--the one about which color of light generates the most power using the cellophane. We could never produce the results stated and after doing more research found that the information was inaccurate. I did call HST and let them know this. They said that they are only a retailer and do not perform the experiments. That was disappointing. I still give this set 4 starts because it is a great price for the science tools you receive and my son loved it! [HST adds: We apologize for the misinformation you received when you called us! This kit *IS* one that we developed and the information provided in the manual *was* incorrect! However, since you alerted us to this error, we've revised the experiment to accurately reflect expected results. Thank you so much for letting us know :) ]

  • I bought this kit for my sons 8th grade science fair project. He is studying the effect of the angle of the sun on solar power generation. This kit gave him the solar panels he needed for his experiments at a great price and he can do many more just for fun.

  • I bought this for my 10 yr old daughter to do a science fair project and she loved it. It even worked using a flashlight!

      Solar Power Study Kit

      Explore the power of the sun as you learn about alternative energy, photovoltaic cells, and electrical circuits. This kit includes instructions to do seven fun experiments, as well as an explanation of how solar power is harnessed. Sure to spark a greater scientific interest in the world we live in! A few basic household items are required for several experiments (such as a light bulb and tin foil).

      Science Fair Project Ideas:

      • Use the motor and one of the photovoltaic cells in this kit to make a solar-powered car!
      • Try using a box fan to spin the motor, turning it into a generator. Can you combine a solar cell with the generator to produce more power?
