Use the sun to power a motor. The energy conversion from solar to electrical to mechanical energy will be made concrete for students using this simple kit. When the solar panel is placed in bright sunlight, it powers the motor. What can the motor power? Add fan blades or patterned disks to emphasize speed and movement. The 24-page booklet Harness the Power of the Sun is included. It contains illustrations, charts, and details about solar energy and its conversion into other energy forms. It also discusses solar energy's practical applications to the world-present and future.
