    What People Are Saying

    My students loved this.

  • I used this in a STEM summer camp for high school students. What's great about this is that it doesn't come with explicit instructions, just some ideas and the parts. Everyone was able to figure something out, and students also decorated them, and came up with all sorts of different configurations. Another great thing about this is that the students were engaged for quite a while in putting these together. Even my camp counselors wanted to make one (and did). Then we raced them. Later, one group of students made a presentation to parents; the students developed a rather advanced discussion of the implication of design alternatives and the pros and cons of direct solar power and battery-electric vehicles. Bravo to the designer of this kit!

      Solar Race Car Experiment Kit

      Experiment with solar energy and electric cars as you design, build, and race your own mini race car!

      This solar race car experiment kit is a great STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) hands-on learning experience. The kit comes with everything you need to develop and apply the principles of basic physics, mechanics, and solar energy while also developing critical thinking and problem-solving skills.

      Students can experiment with gear drive and pulley drive systems to find out which produces the fastest solar car. They can test different solar cell positions to determine which is most effective. The car can also operate on battery power, so designs can be tested and perfected indoors or on cloudy days. Experiment with different voltage outputs with additional solar cells.

      While this solar race car experiment kit includes principles of design and construction tips, it provides great flexibility and freedom for students to create, build and test their own designs. You provide two AA batteries (optional), sharp knife or scissors, glue, tape, and decoration if desired.

      WARNING: CHOKING HAZARD - Small parts. Not for children under 3 years.
