Learn and understand the principles of Solar Power with the fischertechnik Education Solar: Beginner kit. Renewable energy sources will play an increasingly significant role in future. A solar module generates electricity from the energy of the sun to move the solar boats and the solar car. Whether on water or land, the construction set is a learning-by-playing approach to solar power. The solar module and solar motor can be used to make a solar vehicle, a ventilating fan and two floating ship models ("Solar Catamaran" and "Paddle Steamer"). The instructional activity information about solar is available online (fischertechnik-eLearning.com).
Climate and environmental protection are key values in today's world – that’s why we are working to teach kids about this important issue through play. To learn about generating, storing and using electricity from natural sources, children can build exciting models that move using wind, water, or solar power and teach them about applied technology in a fun way. This helps stimulate their interest in these types of energy, which will become even more important in the future. The H2 Fuel Cell Car (Art. no. 559880) is a great addition. This expansion set can be used to build additional models that run on a fuel cell.
How does a fuel cell work, and how can you use it to produce hydrogen? And how can hydrogen be used to drive a vehicle? The fischertechnik H2 Fuel Cell Car building set brings this future technology into your home, answering these and other important questions! Young inventors can produce hydrogen, then use it to power a vehicle and discover the world. They can also build other interesting models in conjunction with the “Green Energy” building set.
