Physics Solar Workshop

I was very interested in checking out the Physics Solar Workshop when I first heard about it.  It is very refreshing to find toys that inspire us to go green and harness the power of the sun. 

 

This kit is for ages 8+ and comes with everything that you need to build a solar bug, solar robot, solar mantis, solar helicopter and a solar rover. 

 

My 8 year old son and I decided to build the solar rover and it took us over an hour to complete.  He did need my help to finish the build but I’m sure that older children would be able to build some of the projects with minimal adult supervision.  Something to keep in mind is that this is solar powered so if it’s a cloudy day, you might have some trouble.  I would either wait for a sunny day or bring a flashlight to use as an extra solar supply which does help quite a bit.  Also, because these are solar products, they are going to be best played with outside.  I was also very impressed with the easy to follow directions( I’m definitely no engineer) and large pictures to help guide us with the assembly. 

 

I have to say that some children’s toys are very difficult to assembly with poor instructions.  Thames & Kosmos always does an excellent job with clear, easy to read and understand instructions with nice big images to follow.  Overall, I highly recommend the Physics Solar Workshop for any child who has a love for the sciences and any parent who wants to encourage that.
