Alternative energy solar powered roversThames & Kosmos has announced the arrival of its new Solar Powered Rovers, which join the company’s popular Alternative Energy range.

The kits, which are suitable for children aged 8+, have been eagerly anticipated by the company’s trade customers, according to Jo Drage, Thames + Kosmos’ sales director.

“Sadly, due to Covid-19, the production of this kit was delayed by a few months,” she explained. “We have seen a surge in the demand for good quality science kits which teach children about alternative energy in a fun and engaging way. The Solar Powered Rover is the perfect present for any budding physicist and perfect to play and experiment with in the upcoming summer holidays. Kids will love the fun factor while parents will be assured by the quality and educational value of this nifty, mid-price range kit.”

Children (and parents) can construct five motorised models with one kit; three types of solar cars, a solar fan and a solar robot model. Alternative Energy Solar Powered Rovers also lets kids conduct science experiments with each model, learning about gear ratios, solar cells and more. The ultralight materials, including strong bamboo rods, make the models both speedy and durable.
