What can I build with this kit?
Make your own solar powered catamaran. This kit comes with a circuit to build automatically rowing oars which work as long as there is enough sunlight. The angle of the oar blades can affect the steering of the boat, why not experiment with different angles to see what you can do. This kit uses two AA batteries (Order Code <L43AL>).) as a backup power supply. With 28 pieces the fun starts before it’s even assembled with the easy snap pieces there’s no need for glue.

How does it work?
Catamarans are boats that float because of two parallel hulls with the body resting on them that are commonly used as ferries. The electronics in this environmentally friendly kit get their power from the solar panel. Solar power gathers energy from sunlight and uses it to excite electrons in the panel to produce energy. This in turn causes the two oars to turn which then helps the boat move and steer through the water. The kit also has a backup battery box in case there isn’t enough sunlight. Both power sources produce direct current (DC) power which has a constant polarity, this gives you the flexibility to change the direction in which the oars, and the boat, move
