Want an easy way to learn about solar energy?

With our Solar Powered Buggy, learning how to harness the sun's energy to produce power is fun and hands-on.

The buggy is simple to construct and all of the required parts are included. The scope of the project can be extended by redesigning aspects of the buggy and evaluate the impact that this has on its performance.

Note: This product is designed to work in direct sunlight and not indoors or on a cloudy day. Alternatively a halogen lamp will allow you to simulate sunshine.
