What type of robots can I build?
With 14 different types of robots you’re spoilt for choice with this educational kit. From crabs to turtle and boats to walking models there are a wide range of models you can build with the 201 piece kit. It comes with a motor and gears to move the robots so you can chose one to build then break it down to build another for hours of fun. The kits are powered by sunlight experiment with direct, indirect sunlight and strong artificial light and see what a difference it can make.

What can I learn from this kit?
Learn about renewable solar power and robotics. Solar power gathers energy from sunlight and uses it to excite electrons in the panel to produce energy. Solar power is one of the world’s biggest sources of renewable power. Robots are used in many applications from assembly lines to toys or scientific research and can be any shape or size. The world’s largest walking robot in 2014 was a 15.72m long and 8.2m high fire breathing dragon. This kit does not require batteries, glue or solder as the pieces snap together. Suitable for ages 10 and over.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 14 In 1 Solar Robot Kit Review Bought this item from Maplin brand new and has been fun to build the robots. This kit provides value for money and is pretty straight forward, Just follow the instructions is all i would say. Also be aware that the solar panel will require light from a 50 watt bulb in a lamp or higher quite close over the panel at all times for it to move or the light from the sun otherwise it stops. Build the gearbox slowly and keep testing with a 50 watt bulb light source. You end up first building the gearbox and testing it then adding different pieces to it to form the different models.

How long does the solar panel take to charge? It has been sat in direct sunlight for a few hours and it isn't doing anything? Thanks
Asked by: Anonymous
You don't charge solar cells. They work off the light shining on them. However, the solar cell supplied in this kit is not up to powering the motor unless you hold it near an extremely bright light.
