Young astronomers will delight in the Mini Solar Kit – as they build, paint and watch their very own Solar System come to life with real solar energy. Planets orbit around the solar-paneled "sun" that drives a motor so the planets actually move. This excellent educational solar kit provides a hands-on lesson about how solar power drives a motor. The kit comes with 6 colors of opaque acrylic paint, plus brush—which makes for the perfect exercise in science and creativity. For ages 10+.
