Invent, design and build solar-electric machines with the 2.0 volt solar panel, electric motor, pulleys, gears, axles, wheels, and propeller included in this kit.
Bushings fit onto motor shaft and to the interior of any of the three sizes of pulleys (1″, 1-1/2″, 2″) or five sizes of gears (10, 20, 30, 40, 50-toothed) to give a wide variety of solar drives.
Incorporate re-cycled materials. Screw eyes and tubing pieces hold wooden dowel axle-shafts onto almost any material at any angle. Experiment with different gear ratios and pulley combinations, as well as different drive mechanisms.
