Thames & Kosmos Thames andamp; Kosmos Physics Solar Workshop

Solar power technology in action. In one way or another, almost every form of energy we use originates as energy from the Sun. Solar energy directly powers photovoltaic cells and thermal collectors. Indirectly, we get power from plants grow...n by the Sun, oceans heated by the Sun, and Earth?s weather systems sustained by the Sun. Even the energy stored in fossil fuels originated as energy from the Sun, captured by plants and animals millions of years ago. Physics Solar Workshop explores the topic of solar energy, focusing on photovoltaic cells. By building 12 models and conducting 30 experiments, you will learn how solar cells transform light into electrical energy, and how motors and mechanical devices can optimize the work done by this energy. You will build different types of vehicles and machines to demonstrate how gears can convert and transform power for different needs. There are 320 parts, which are also compatible with the other Physics kits. The 64-page book offers illustrated instructions for the projects. Developed with GreenpeaceŽ in Germany. Ages 8 and up. Recommended Ages: 8 years and Up Dimensions: 14.59in length x 11.5in width x 3.1in height Read More

The beautifully illustrated manual included with the Kids' First Biology Lab Experiment Kit guides you through observations of man...y 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 sheep's 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. Features 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. 11 experiments total. Requires two (2) AA batteries (not included). For ages 8 and older. Materials: Plastic, Metal, Glass. Dimensions: 16.8 L x 11.5 W x 3.2 H - Packaged; 1.4 lbs Read More

With the Electronics: Advanced Circuits Experiment Kit, start out by experimenting with colorful light-up circuits as you dive int...o the basics of electricity! Install a sound module to generate the sounds of police cars, ambulances, or fire engines. Learn the important role resistors and potentiometers (variable resistors) play in an electronic circuit. Use a multimeter to measure invisible voltage and current flowing through your circuit, and investigate transistors in switches and amplifiers to learn how the logical circuits in computers work. Build circuits that use sensors to detect moisture, temperature, and visible light! Incorporate capacitors in your circuits to store and discharge electricity for specific functions, such as a countdown clock and a red-green alternate flasher. Test out the indispensable 555 timer to build some complicated circuits, or use an operational amplifier and an FM radio module to build an alarm clock. This kit uses the same unique electric building blocks as our other electronics kits, with the addition of many new advanced components, allowing you to build more complex circuits.
