Solar Space Fleet 7 in 1 Electronic Kit

• Create seven different space themed solar powered models in this kit
• Create a space station, mech suit, wheeled explorer, shuttle and even canine and human astronauts
• Learn about renewable solar power and electronics
• Great fun to make with 63 parts
• Suitable for ages 10+

How easy is the train to put together?
Make seven out-of-this-world models from a shuttlecraft to an astronaut with this 63 piece electronic kit. The models can be powered either from the solar panel or the micro rechargeable battery. When the battery runs flat you can recharge it with the included solar panel or alkaline batteries (not included). When powered by the solar panel you can experiment with direct, indirect and strong artificial light and see what a difference it can make.

What can I learn from this kit?
Learn about renewable solar power. 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. Solar power has many potential space based applications. Launched in 2004 the Rosetta mission was made up of a solar powered orbiter and probe and the probe was landed successfully onto a comet in 2014. This kit does not require batteries, glue or solder as the pieces snap together. Suitable for ages 8 and over.
