Solar Kit
Solar Kit
Our Price: $29.95

This kit demonstrates the ability of solar power to be converted into mechanical energy, light energy, sound and current.  Includes mounted solar cell with terminals, a miniature motor, buzzer and light emitting diode mounted on a 8" x 5.
Mendocino Solar Spinning Motor
Mendocino Solar Spinning Motor
Our Price: $49.99

A Mendocino Motor is a floating, solar powered motor that hovers by use of magnets. It receives power from the solar panels (4 in all) that are on each face of the rotor. The rotor floats on a base which also has magnets that repulse the magnets built into the ends of the rotor that allow it to 'float' much like the manually powered Magnetic Spinner. A large, powerful magnet is set in the center of the base.

When light strikes one of the panels it creates electrical current, which in turn creates a magnetic field. This field interacts with the magnetic field of the base's central magnet and causes the rotor to spin. The process repeats with each panel and the rotor can build up quite a level of speed.

Solar Cockroaches 25pk
Solar Cockroaches 25pk
Our Price: $100.00

The Solar Cockroach is a little bug that uses the solar energy to power a vibrating motor. The vibrations from the motor travel down the legs, causing the bug to scoot around. These little vibrating bugs are essential tools for teaching beginning soldering lessons to students and adults of all ages. This project also offers a lesson in solar energy, motion, and vibration. Simply place the completed Solar Cockroach in the sun and watch it vibrate and scoot around!

Pack of 25 Solar Cockroaches.

This item has a flat rate shipping of $10.

Suitable for: grades 7+
Requires basic soldering knowledge

Parts Included:

  • 2V Solar Cell
  • Vibrating Motor
  • Resistor
  • 2 Paperclips

Solar Furnace
Solar Furnace
Our Price: $110.00

Demonstrate the extraordinary power of the sun by concentrating solar energy with this 12" diameter parabolic dish. Using its reflective mirror, the furnace can generate extreme temperatures to heat materials placed in the attached copper receptacle.
Natural Energy Kit
Natural Energy Kit
Our Price: $160.65

This kit has 19 hands-on activities which explore electric, wind, solar, geo-thermal, biomass and nuclear energy. Kit includes a teacher's guide and lab materials for five students.
Dual Axis Smart Solar Tracker
Dual Axis Smart Solar Tracker
Our Price: $175.00

Create your own computer controller dual axis solar tracker in under and hour, using only a screw driver.

The sun is awesome, and so is solar electric power generation. Unforately for solar panels, the sun moves. To counter this you can make a tracker that follows the sun and allows for even greater energy production.

We accomplish this by using two micro servos, four sensors, an Arduino Uno, custom laser cut wood, and a whole lot of screws. By popular request we designed this project to be non soldering, and all you'll need are some screw drivers and a wire stripper.

Comes with a very handy Solar Cell and Volt Meter to gather solar data for use in projects and experiments.
