The Fuel Cell Car & Experiment Kit has been a hot item since its introduction six years ago. It has captivated tens of thousands of children and adults alike, who have played and learned with it. Now, another version of the fuel cell car kit, the Fuel Cell X7, is available. This kit still has our award-winning model car with its unique reversible fuel cell not found in other fuel cell car models. The car still functions in the same manner as described on the opposite page. The Fuel Cell X7 edition is designed to be accessible to more users, both in terms of content and price. The manual focuses more on building and designing a fuel cell car, rather than the comprehensive lesson on the science of fuel cells and solar cells found in the original version. The minimum age is lower and the instructions are geared toward a younger audience. The kit has been optimized for simplicity and ease of use over thorough experimentation. With its new focus, some parts have become unnecessary and have been removed to reduce the cost. The kit that is right for you or your child will depend on your needs, interest level, and age group.The full-color, 16-page manual contains easy, step-by-step instructions for assembling and using the car, as well as scientific explanations.Recommended Ages: 10 Years & Up
With Physics Discovery, you can build 12 models and then conduct experiments with the models to learn about forces and simple machines. Each model demonstrates a fundamental idea in mechanical physics. For example, you can build a balance scale to learn about lever arms, a freight elevator to learn about pulleys, a bicycle to learn about wheels, a motion picture machine to learn about centripetal and centrifugal forces, and a transmission to learn about gears. Physics Discovery is a smaller, introductory companion to our best-selling Physics Workshop kit. It has different building projects and experiments, but parts that are compatible with those in Physics Workshop and Physics Solar Workshop. This kit includes more than 100 building pieces. The 32-page book offers illustrated instructions for building projects and experiments. Ages 8 and up. Recommended Ages: 8 years & Up
Solar power technology in action.In one way or another, almost every form of energy we use originates as energy from the Sun. Solar energy directly powers photovoltaic cells and thermal collectors. Indirectly, we get power from plants grown by the Sun, oceans heated by the Sun, and Earth’s weather systems sustained by the Sun. Even the energy stored in fossil fuels originated as energy from the Sun, captured by plants and animals millions of years ago. Physics Solar Workshop explores the topic of solar energy, focusing on photovoltaic cells. By building 12 models and conducting 30 experiments, you will learn how solar cells transform light into electrical energy, and how motors and mechanical devices can optimize the work done by this energy. You will build different types of vehicles and machines to demonstrate how gears can convert and transform power for different needs. There are 320 parts, which are also compatible with the other Physics kits. The 64-page book offers illustrated instructions for the projects. Developed with Greenpeace@ in Germany. Ages 8 and up.Recommended Ages: 8 years & Up
Blaze up the sky with a swift, bright light -the Solar Flare. This flashy, two-stage rocket kit is sure to be the buzz of rocket enthusiasts everywhere. The two stage rocket stands over 28" (71 cm) tall. Its innovative ring design makes this rocket a one of a kind on any launch pad. The Solar Flare is a Skill Level 2 rocket kit that features laser cut balsa fins, high quality body tubes, clear payload section and a plastic nose cone for a straightforward assembly. The B or C powered booster stage has a tapered look and makes this rocket look like an intergalactic researcher. In addition to a two stage rocket, you can fly the upper stage on an A10 mini engine without the booster. You?re actually getting two extremely cool rockets in one complete launch set. This rocket features two different styles of recovery, tumble (for the booster stage) and a colorful 12" (30 cm) preassembled parachute for the upper stage. It flies almost 850 ' (260 m) high using Estes booster and/or mini engines. Launch your payload experiments with a flare. Assembly required. Building tools, finishing supplies, Estes engines and launch supplies are needed - sold separately. Recommended for ages 10 and up with adult supervision for those under 12.Features include: -Two-stage rocket-Clear payload section-Skill level 2-Over 28" tall-Flies up to 850'
Build your own solar-powered models and discover how solar cells generate electricity from light. Build six solar powered models including a locomotive, single-prop plane, bulldozer, helicopter, backhoe, and twin-rotor helicopter.The special solar panel in this kit consists of three solar cells and generates 1.5 volts of electricity in bright sunlight, like a AA battery. A unique cradle holds either the solar panel or the battery, allowing you to switch out the solar panel for a AA battery (not included), depending on the strength of sunlight. You can even use the solar panel to charge up your own rechargeable AA batteries. The solar panel is positionable, so you can maximize its exposure to the sun to generate the most power.The 24-page color instruction book included in this kit gives step-by-step instructions for assembling the six model vehicles. After you have built the suggested models, you can design your own solar vehicles. Compete with your friends to see whose solar vehicle runs the fastest!The 177 building pieces included in this set are compatible with those in all Thames & Kosmos Construction Series kits, Physics Series kits, Wind Power, and Hydropower kits.Recommended Ages: 8 years & Up
Build your own solar-powered creations and discover how solar cells generate electricity. Assemble 22 models including a scooter, locomotive, forklift, road roller, cement mixer, solar-wind sail car, crane, amphibious boat, motorcycle, beach buggy, race car, side-car motorcycle, trailer, elevator, oil tanker, maintenance car, solar car with clutch, street sweeper, backhoe, helicopter, twin-prop airplane, and cable car. The two special solar panels in this kit each consist of three solar cells. When linked together in series, they generate up to 3.0 volts of electricity in bright sunlight, like two AA batteries. Two unique cradles hold either the solar panels or batteries, allowing you to switch out the solar panels for two AA batteries (not included), depending on the strength of sunlight. You can even use the solar panel to charge up your own rechargeable AA batteries. The solar panels are positionable, so you can maximize their exposure to the sun to generate the most power. Power the models you build with the solar panels outside on sunny days or indoors under a high-wattage incandescent light bulb. Power your models anytime with AA batteries or even a combination of AA battery and solar panel. The 48-page color instruction book included in this kit gives step-by-step instructions for assembling the 22 models.Recommended Ages: 8 years & Up
