The Solar Windmill is a great starter kit for those wishing to see the power of the sun in action. After constructing the Solar Windmill with the simple step-by-step instructions, simply place it in a sunny spot to charge the solar panels. The solar panels then convert the energy from the sun into electricity, which then powers the tiny motor, causing the fan spin! This kit can be used as an educational activity to demonstrate the conversion of energy, as a beginner construction kit, or just as a fun and interactive toy for everyone to enjoy. Not suitable for children under three years of age.
Windmill size: 135 x 55 x 65mm
