Age range 8 years thru 12 years
Toy Type CO -- Construction EC -- Eco-friendly ES -- Educational Skills HO -- Hobby SR -- Socially Responsible Rookie Solar Racer v2 is redesigned version of the original Rookie Solar Racer. The modernized Racer possesses all the qualities of a five-tool player: strength, power, speed, building, and cost effectiveness. Strength as it's supported by a strong metal base. Power as harnessed by the most powerful and efficient source of energy-the sun. The photovoltaic cell (solar panel) converts the sun's energy directly into electrical energy. Speed by being backed by a lightweight design possesses amazing quickness. Your young engineer will enjoy and learn while building the perfectly sculpted frame, which is also ideal for a do-it-yourself science fair, after-school, or any time maker activity. This project offers a bonus gift of learning how automotive transmission and motors work. A key cog in the development of a child's mind is that the retention of child's learning experience is multiplied if they can coordinate reading with actual hands-on experience. This is the least expensive mini-solar kit in OWI's award winning line with only 20 assembly parts. Rookie Solar Racer v2 will bring excitement plus a fun-filled educational experience with many moments of discovery. The OWI, Inc.® mission is to be a part of the larger conversation of energy efficiency, celebrate environmental friendliness, and offer sustainability. Empower your child with the knowledge to make our world a better place to live. With that goal OWI has fabricated simple and effective solar kits to engage greater curiosity, awareness and learning.
