Solar Bug Kit
Consider these as "no frills" robotics kits for your youngest roboticist! Each set contains only basic components - such as motors and solar cells - to create adorable, personalizable robots with. This emphasis on simplicity reduces build times (about 10 minutes per set), allows kids to build it themselves with no or little adult aid, and narrows the focus to the basic concepts at work. However, these are to be considered "buildable robotic toys" more so than educational kits. Use them as fun supplements, or a cursory introduction for youngsters to check for deeper interest! Comes with parts for 2 solar-powered, decorable bugs. Requires no additional tools to build.
Our Solar Bugs teachhowsolar power can be converted into motion. Byconnecting a2V solar cell directly to thevibrating motor, we've created a small solar project that can be usedto a number of different concepts. When placed insunlight, the vibrating motorcauses the bug to wiggle around. This project allows students to flex their creative muscles while also learning about solar power, motion, and vibration.We recommend personalizing your Solar Bugs by painting, staining, or coloring the wood bodiesbefore assembly.
