“Excellent tool for learning about the generation of solar energy and basic concepts of electricity. Instruction manual is clear and well-done. I used it for introducing students to the most import concepts of this technology.” - Dr. W.
“I have always wanted a fun way to learn basic electronics (I'm 25). This kit provides a way to learn basic circuit building while also teaching the science behind photo-voltaic electricity production. I really did not expect to learn so much out of such a basic kit, but the instruction manual really is plush with detailed knowledge.” -C. W.
