Product Description

Drive into solar energy learning as you play with this cool play vehicle! With the new Educational Insight's solar power from the GeoSafari exploration series you can experiment with the sun powered vehicle and learn about how solar cells convert energy from sunlight into mechanical energy. The solar rover comes with the adjustable solar cells that allow you to control how the vehicle moves. Simply alternate light and shadow over a solar cell to make the vehicle turn. You need to stop the rover - just block the sun! Conduct experiments with the solar cell to see how different placement angles, different light levels, different sources of light, and different loads affect its operation. The GeoSafari Solar Rover Solar Energy Science Toy includes a 20-page multilingual activity guide and 3 mini cones to create an obstacle course for this sun vehicle. The solar vehicle from Educational Toys Planet's science kit does not require assembly. Learn about solar power in a fun, hands-on way!

  1. Rating: 5 Very cool solar science for a bright kiddo! by By A customer Our kids are a bit too young to fully utilize the solar rover. Perhaps it will still be in good shape once they grow and learn enough! My husband and I really enjoyed figuring out out, and my son (almost 2) wouldn't put it down once he saw it. Even without using the solar aspect, it's a neat toy. I think the design is very "cool" with the streamlined shape and fun colors.
  2. Rating: 5 All of us love the fact that it doesn't require any batteries and ... by By A customer My kids were excited to get this Geosafari Solar Rover. All of us love the fact that it doesn't require any batteries and moves with ease in the sunlight. It's a great way to get into the topic of what solar power is and how it works with my oldest. The cones can add a challenged obstacle course and I can see my nieces and nephews playing with this soon when they come over!

  4. Rating: 5 Exploring Solar Power by By A customer Our 5 year old took an interest in steam power about a month ago and that led to water powered cars and then to solar power. The #GeoSafari Solar Rover was the perfect start for his solar adventure. He is still working on getting the hang of navigating the car but he's having a blast using his shadow to make it start and stop. The Rover takes off as soon as the sun hits the solar panel and the panels are adjustable so you can tilt them to catch the sun the best. As an added benefit my 5 year old has been having a blast learning about the sun, it's position in the sky, how it causes shadows and the orientation of the shadow. He fascinated with the idea the sun powers the car and I can see him growing into the toy and enjoying the challenge of learning to navigate it. The only downside is that we had almost a week of cloudy days when he received the Rover and you need sunshine for this toy to work. Overall it's a great educational toy that will allow children to explore.
