The perfect exercise to combine art and science!
Young astronomers will be delighted with this mini solar kit – as they build, paint and watch their very own solar system come to life with real solar energy. Planets orbit around the solar-paneled “sun” that drives a motor so the planets actually move. This excellent educational solar kit provides a hands-on lesson about how solar power drives a motor, while introducing planets in the solar system and creating a mobile piece of art for your room.
– 6 colors of opaque acrylic paint
– All gears and parts necessary for assembly (no tools required)
1. The moving speed, planet size and distance is not in real proportion to the Solar System.
2. The solar energy necessary might not be available during winter months, during which one can use appropriate lighting instead.
