A build-it-yourself solar powered planetarium! This Solar System Kit not only teaches kids about space, it is also a DIY craft kit, providing pots of paint so that you can paint all the planets of your new planetarium.
Young astronomers will love this Solar System Kit - they can build, paint and then watch the Solar System come to life powered only by the light of the sun. Children will learn all about how solar power drives a motor, alongside an artistic lesson on space.
With science facts and a detailed instruction booklet included, this hands on kit is as informative as it is fun. Following the directions you will soon have your solar powered Solar System built and moving via the power of the sun.
