In the 21st century, living sustainably and using the Earth’s resources responsibly for future generations, is a high priority for many. This comprehensive Thames and Kosmos kit, aimed at children ten years and over, will have you investigating all aspects of the Earth’s climate, from the sun to the water cycle to wind power. By conducting the 100 thought-provoking experiments, you can become an expert on alternative energy sources and sustainable living, as well as energy efficient building principles including passive house design. Best of all, you will end up with a miniature house that is not only powered by a wind turbine, but also by photovoltaic cells, with its own greenhouse and desalination system!
