Thames & Kosmos Construction Series Eco Battery Vehicle

It?s looking increasingly inevitable that electric vehicles (EV's for short) will be the cars of the future. More specifically, battery electric vehicles (or BEV's) which are powered entirely by rechargeable chemical cells are starting to b...ecome practical. Many major auto manufacturers have BEV's in development, and a few already have BEV's on the road today. The challenge in making BEV's a viable transportation solution is the battery. Batteries must be easy to recharge, able to hold enough charge to drive long distances, and more efficient than gasoline engines. Scientists and engineers around the world are tackling this battery challenge, and major progress is being made. In this kit, you can build and experiment with a new type of environmentally friendly ?fuel cell? to learn about electrochemical cells and BEV's. Features: Metal-air electrochemical cell type of battery that is widely used in small scale devices Ideal for demonstrating battery technology Does not use any harmful chemicals Uses only magnesium plates, salt water, and the oxygen in the air to generate electricity Experiment with different concentrations of salt to see how long Learn about electrochemistry and battery technology One metal plate lasts as much as six times longer than a regular AA battery Full-color, 64-page experiment manual. 91 building pieces Moreover, magnesium is considered an eco-friendly renewable fuel because it could be harvested cleanly from ocean water Build 20 different models and power them with this special battery Ages 10 and up 22 Experiments Read More

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!
