What can I build with this kit?
The perfect kit for any dinosaur enthusiast. Assemble your very own T-Rex from the 30 piece kit then watch it take it first steps. The kit clips together so there’s no need for glue. The dinosaur can walk all on its own using the solar panel or take control with the hand crank and change the direction as you power it.

How does it work?
The dinosaur is powered by either a solar panel or a hand generator. Solar power gathers energy from light and uses it to excite electrons in the panel to produce energy which makes the dino move. The hand power generator is a dynamo, a device that uses kinetic (movement) energy to induce electricity. Turn the generator one way to move the dino forwards and the other to reverse. Both of these power supplies produce direct current (DC) power which has a constant polarity. This means you can make the dinosaur reverse by turning the hand generator in the opposite direction or change over the wire of the solar panel.

Learn and play with Greenex
Greenex demonstrates how to create fun electronic kits that run on renewable power sources. No soldering, glue or even batteries are required.. The Greenex 36512 kit encourages environmentally friendly electronics, demonstrating alternative power sources in a fun and exciting way.

This kit should be used with adult supervision and assistance and is suitable for children aged 8 and over.
Do not connect both power supplies at the same time as this may damage the solar panel.
