With 57 parts, this is great fun to build and play with. The kit clips together so there is no need for glue or soldering and all the power needed is generated by the solar panel. Diagonal cutters may be required (recommended Order Code A20QW How does it work?
Harness the power of the sun with the solar panel and use it to run the car. The solar panels works by using the energy from sunlight to excite electrons in the panel, producing energy which moves the models. Solar power is becoming more widespread and full size solar power vehicles are being designed. In 2015 a solar powered plane flew from Japan to Hawaii (over 7000 miles) and the solar powered catamaran PlanetSolar was the first solar vehicle to circumnavigate the globe in 2012.
