Solar Bug 2.0 - Classroom Kit


Solar Bug 2.0 - Classroom Kit

Create a solar powered insect that zips around and makes noise!

Learn about solar energy in a fun and creative way! The new solar bug design has students creating a simple solar circuit in minutes using only conductive tape! Cut out your bug, decorate it, then add your solar cell and vibrating motor! These bugs will zip around any smooth surface when in direct sunlight and make a silly clattering sound.

Explore how solar power is converted into motion with a Solar Bug. A 2V solar cell connects directly to a self-stick vibrating motor causing this bug to wiggle around when placed in direct sunlight. This project allows students to flex their creative muscles, while also learning about solar power, motion, and vibration. We recommend personalizing your Solar Bugs by painting or coloring the cardstock before assembly.
