tough, water ready and solar powered. It would be difficult to
find a beginner robotic kit more fun and educational than the
Amphibious Solar Vehicle! This kit introduces fundamentals of
solar power through hands-on experiments. The sun or any
intense mobile light can power the solar cell (included). A
multiple function switch (solar [1.4 volt, 350mA] or battery)
allows this kit to be energized day or night, indoors or
outdoors. Its scientifically structured catamaran design
reduces water resistance, thus reducing the possibility of
capsizing. The user can explore different types of energy
conversion with this land and water vehicle. Learn what
materials solar cells are made from and the characteristics of
solar cells, advantages and disadvantages of solar power. Dr.
Toy, Stevanne Auerbach, Ph.D., author, consultant and expert
