Product overview

• Create four different solar powered robots in this kit
• Create a robot, beetle, T-Rex and drill vehicle

• Great fun to make with 67 parts
• Suitable for ages 8+

What type of robots can I build?
The 67-part kit comes with instructions for creating four simple and easy to build robots. Have fun playing with a walking T-Rex with a moving jaw, crawling rhino beetle with moving pincers, wheeled drill and cool robot. The kit comes with stickers for adding the final touch to your robots and detailed instructions on how to build them. 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 8 and over.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Detailed and fun. I assembled this with my nearly 5 year old and he loved watching it come to life.

How much light is needed to power this? Just returning a different solar powered robot that will only work if held with solar panel next to a lamp bulb ie. less than 2 inches from bulb! Even direct torchlight didn't make it run.

The item needs direct sunlight.
