Explore the universe by building the solar system model.
This kit contains a solar power cell which when you have build the model will make all the planets gentle spin around the sun. Easy to build, the pieces just slot together. There is a set of 6 paints and information about each of the planets so that you can create your own versions of the geography of these amazing celestial bodies.
With clear instructions and also information on each of the planets, this is a great activity to do alongside a science project. Please note – the distance and the speed of the planets is not accurate – you would need a much bigger model to do this, but they do give you the sequence and the idea of the orbits.
- There is building, painting and research involved
- The finished product will work with solar power – just like the real solar system
- They can find out more about each of the planets
