Cool yourself down with this fan powered by the sun or salt water. No need for solder or glue, all the electronic parts can be easily gripped by the springs placed on the board and the plastic pieces which slot together. The fun starts right at the beginning with building this 21 piece kit. A practical and fun way to learn about alternative power sources.
How does it work?
Power this fan using the solar panel or salt water module. Solar power gathers energy from sunlight and uses it to excite electrons in the panel to produce energy which moves the fan. Salt water modules use a chemical reaction to create power also known as an air batteries. The reaction is not created by the salt water and so it shouldn’t need to be topped up whilst playing with it. Both of these power supplies produce direct current (DC) power which has a constant polarity. This means you can change the direction the fan turns in by turning the hand generator in the opposite direction.
