Additional Details

Requiring no tools for assembly, the Solar House is wired with conductive Maker Tape and can be used over and over again. Students can familiarize themselves with simple circuit diagrams while applying the conductive tape. They will also wire up LEDs, install a motor and build rudimentary switches to control the power produced by a 6 V solar cell on the roof of their house.
This kit is designed to introduce students to electrical theory using easily accessible components and a renewable energy source. Place the Solar House in sunlight or even artificial light (provided there is a strong enough light source) and watch as the two lights and motor are energized. Students can then experiment with removing the "switches" to reroute the power and see how different components have varying loads. For example, when the motor is unhooked from the circuit, the green LED will show brighter. Your students will love getting their hands on this sturdy Solar House kit.
