Were really proud of our new Solar Lab 1.0 educational kit. Designed to teach students of all ages how solar cells can be used in real electric circuits that are simple to build (with adult supervision for kids under 12). Contains 9 step-by-step labs in a clearly-written manual to guide you through the basics of solar electricity and how to use it in everyday life. Youll learn:
How a solar cell works
How to build circuits to solar-power different devices
How to use a multimeter to learn about voltage, electric current and power
How to build a solar-powered battery charger (batteries included).
Multi-voltage solar panel
Motor with fan blade and stand
Bulb, diode, resister, LED, battery holder, batteries, all cables and connectors
SolarLab 1.0 Manual
Youll have fun and learn all about solar energy! Customer review: "I bought this kit after reading that some of the cheaper kits either ship with bad components or just don't explain things clearly. I was also compelled by the one other review that mentioned this kit does a good job teaching basic electronics along with how solar electricity is most often harnessed. This kit delivers all of those things. I have always wanted a fun way to learn basic electronics (I'm 25). This kit provides a way to learn basic circuit building while also teaching the science behind photo-voltaic electricity production. I really did not expect to learn so much out of such a basic kit, but the instruction manual really is plush with detailed knowledge. Be prepared to be able to interpret some of the deeper concepts the manual touches on to your child or student. I think this level of depth is a good thing. I would much rather have a kit overflowing with knowledge rather than one that comes up short. The electronics are also great quality. The multimeter is excellent. I plan on keeping the multimeter and either donating the kit to my local Goodwill or a family member. The manual has places for writing down your findings when completing the labs. I recommend omitting writing in the instruction book if you plan to pass it on to someone else when you are done."
