Solar Power House Kit
Build & Experiment with a Model
Power House: Experiments in Future Techniques
provides an engaging introduction to regenerative energy sources while
learning basic concepts and principles in physical science. The kit
focuses on the heat and light energy from the sun, the energy from the
wind, as well as with electrochemical and plant energy. You will learn how
to transform and use these forms of energy.
Thames & Kosmos Power House kit you can build a
model house complete with solar panels, windmill, greenhouse, and
desalination system. You can build and operate an electric train,
windmill, solar cooker, solar hot water tank, hygrometer, electric motor,
power hoist, sail car, and more! Plant watercress, prepare sauerkraut, and
make chewing gum. Learn how plants convert sunlight into energy for your
body and your engines.
The thoughtfully designed series of experiments
were developed by physicist Uwe Wandrey. Professor Wandrey creatively
integrates physical science and technology lessons with the adventure of
building a home and living on a remote island. To survive, you must learn
how to harness the power of the sun and the wind as well as tap the energy
of other physical forces. The storyline follows the experiments in a
stepwise fashion. Easy-to-follow activities make it fun to build models
and use them for your experiments.
Ages 12 and up, soldering is not required.
House is constructed from pre-fabricated foam panels.
Personal note: This is
by far one of the best put together packages we have ever seen.
Items like this will hopefully inspire our future generations to design
and build energy efficient homes. Great for Birthdays, Summer Camp
Projects, Boy Scouts and more.
