54-in-1 Solar House Lab Chaney Students create a model house made of Plexiglas and install an amorphous silicon glass solar panel to simulate how to harness the sun's energy. This kit will introduce students to basic technology and fundamental concepts used in common house- hold devices such as lighting, thermostats, fire alarms and burglar alarms. These technologies include solar panels, motors, fans, resistors, diodes, LEDs, switches, lamps and batteries. Easy-to-follow pictorial diagrams will guide the student through 26 chapters containing a variety of activities and useful experiments along with fun and interesting facts relating to solar energy. Kit offers a hands-on approach that is applicable for use in grades 6 through college. No soldering or additional batteries required. Re-usable and safe to use. Beginner skill level. Includes parts, components, wires, breadboard, solar panel & detailed instruction manual. Stk. Mfr. Price 301000 C7041 $60.00 Grid to simulate electrical blackouts and brownouts. It is a great way to have students assemble and wire each house to learn about renewable energy and how the real Power Grid works. Each house supports up to 2 students. No cutting or trimming required. Assembly requires only a screwdriver. More houses and accessories can be added to the grid.
