Solar Bugs teach how solar power can be converted into motion. By connecting a 2V solar cell directly to the vibrating motor, you can create 2 solar projects that can be used to a number of different concepts. When placed in sunlight, the vibrating motor causes the bug to wiggle around. This project allows students to flex their creative muscles while also learning about solar power, motion, and vibration. Personalize your Solar Bugs by painting, staining, or coloring the wood bodies before assembly.
