Explore the potential of solar power with this educational solar-powered robot. The Frightened Grasshopper Solar Powered Bug teaches about forms of alternative energy in a kid-friendly way.
It demonstrates using solar energy to generate electricity, illustrating how radiant energy from the sun can be transformed to electrical energy with a PV cell. A motor inside the grasshopper transforms electrical energy into motion.
The grasshopper functions best very close to a non-fluorescent light bulb or in direct sunlight.
Recommended for the first time science experimenters with little or no experience, age 10 and up.
