About this product

Overview

Product overview

• 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+
• No batteries required, it creates its own power and has a micro rechargeable battery

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Kit This is a fantastic kit with good instructions. My 7 year old has grasped this very quickly and loves all the learning involved.

Does this built all seven separately or one at a time which you have to dismantle to build the next one

Asked by: Golfharry
This will only build one at a time.
