Build your own solar-powered models and discover how solar cells generate electricity from light. Build six solar powered models i...ncluding a locomotive, single-prop plane, bulldozer, helicopter, backhoe, and twin-rotor helicopter. The special solar panel in this kit consists of three solar cells and generates 1.5 volts of electricity in bright sunlight, like a AA battery. A unique cradle holds either the solar panel or the battery, allowing you to switch out the solar panel for a AA battery (not included), depending on the strength of sunlight. You can even use the solar panel to charge up your own rechargeable AA batteries. The solar panel is positionable, so you can maximize its exposure to the sun to generate the most power. The 24-page color instruction book included in this kit gives step-by-step instructions for assembling the six model vehicles. After you have built the suggested models, you can design your own solar vehicles. Compete with your friends to see whose solar vehicle runs the fastest! The 177 building pieces included in this set are compatible with those in all Thames and Kosmos Construction Series kits, Physics Series kits, Wind Power, and Hydropower kits.

Discover the science of living things with this complete introductory microscope kit. The beautifully illustrated experiment manua...l guides you through observations of many living specimens found in and around your home: onion cells, pond water, chloroplasts, plant stem cross sections, microorganisms, mouth cells, meat cells, different types of hair and fur, dust mites, bugs, pollen in honey, and much more. See how an onion cell shrivels and how an earthworm wiggles. Analyze the differences between the hair on your head and the sheeps hair in your wool sweater. The kit includes three prepared specimens on a slide, four blank slides, cover slips, tweezers, needle, section slicing tool, and vial. Learn how to use these tools to prepare slides and how to use the microscope to examine them. Investigate how the lenses in a microscope bend light to magnify images. The ocular lens, or eyepiece lens, of the microscope has an adjustable 12x to 18x magnification power. When combined with the three objective lenses, this results in a total magnification power of 96x to 750x. It has a battery-powered light and a mirror to light up the specimens. The full-color, 32-page manual covers microscope setup, usage, and many fascinating observations of biological specimens.

Build a working hovercraft that glides across smooth floors or flat water on a cushion of air. Learn how even though air is invisi...ble, it still has mass and can support very heavy objects under the right circumstances. Experiment with propellers and impellers to learn about air pressure and air flow. The models in this kit use a unique blower motor and a safe, soft-bladed fan to drive a series of models. The blower motor uses an impeller to increase the air pressure under the hovercraft. The fan creates a stream of air to push the vehicle forward. Using these components, you can build and investigate the hovercraft and other machines that rely on air and air pressure to function. Construct a batting machine that tosses a ball upward on a stream of air. Assemble a basketball launcher and practice shooting hoops with air power.
