Learn all about kinetic energy and build your own racecar with this fun kit! Experiment with the hand crank power generator and the LED light, small light bulb, and spinning color disk to learn how the kinetic power generator and motor works. Then build your car, charge it with the generator, and watch it go! Experiment with the number of turns on the generator to see how much energy is stored in the motor each time. The instruction manual includes information about types of energy production, experiments, test questions, and assembly instructions. The car is 4.5” long. Includes hand-crank power generator, motor, miniature bulb, LED, chassis with circuit board, car body, 2 axles, motor holder, 4 wheels, and instruction manual. ~Rachel E.
Create and store energy with OWI’s Kinetic Racer. This 14-piece kit requires zero batteries, and is the perfect tool to teach sustainable energy, while also providing sustainable fun! Boys and Girls ages eight and up will be able to experiment with a pre-assembled hand crank generator and demonstrate how kinetic energy is converted into electrical energy. Detailed lesson plans, with the use of the generator, light-emitting diode (LED), and Miniature Bulb, will have children amazed as they witness the energy they generated, illuminate almost magically. Once the energy conversion principle is established, knowledge-hungry students will connect the hand power generator to the Kinetic Racer with a capacitor and experiment on how energy can be stored and discharged. Scholarly children will be able to test preconceived hypotheses on how much energy is stored with 30 turns, 60 turns, even 100 turns of the hand-powered generator! This trial and error-based learning will free up the minds of children and allow them to discover and explore physics and math without the fear of failure. The Kinetic Racer is much more than a hands-on training tool. The instruction manual includes a full curriculum, complete with test questions, answers, and fun activities to extend the play value of the Kinetic Racer. Producing energy, storing energy, and using energy without the use of batteries makes for a great science and learning kit.
The RobotiKits from OWI have no comparison. For flawless assembly: 5 stars. For clarity of instructions: 5 stars. For durability of constructed robots: 5 stars. For robots that actually work as advertised: 5 stars. Let's face it - not all kits turn out as well as they are supposed to, but you can count on these kits going together and functioning with the perfection of precision engineered components. All kits come with a pre-assembled circuit board. Most components are made from plastic and either snap together, or hold in place with the provided screws. Some kits may require some additional tools listed below. What sort of knowledge will be gleaned while enjoying these fun kits? Gear structure, battery wiring, motor principles, electronic circuits, circuit block diagrams, and comprehending assembly instructions. Try one today! CHOKING HAZARD (1). Not <3yrs.
