The Pitsco SunEzoon Solar Car is a hands-on project that includes all parts needed to build a solar-powered model car for use with students in grades 3-12 studying solar energy and physics concepts such as force, motion, speed, velocity, and acceleration. Each kit contains a 0.45V, 400 mA solar panel with alligator clamps, motor, motor mount, front and rear polyethylene wheels, steel axles, nylon axle bushings, polystyrene gear font (variety of gears), chassis plate, a cut-and-fold paper cover, double-sided adhesive tabs, and instructions. The finished solar car measures approximately 2.5 x 5 x 4 inches (H x W x D). (H is height, the vertical distance from lowest to highest point; W is width, the horizontal distance from left to right; D is depth, the horizontal distance from front to back.) A solar car kit is typically used to demonstrate solar energy and physics.
The SunEzoon solar car kit requires scissors and hobby knife or sandpaper (all sold separately) for construction. The kit can be used in conjunction with the Pitsco 59465 SunEzoon Cars Teacher's Guide (sold separately).
Science education products incorporate applied math and science principles into classroom projects. Teachers in pre-K, elementary, and secondary classrooms use science education kits and products alongside science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) curriculum to demonstrate STEM concepts and real-world applications through hands-on activities. Science education projects include a broad range of activities, such as practical experiments in engineering, aeronautics, robotics, energy, chemistry, physics, biology, and geology.
Pitsco Education develops K-12 science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) curriculum, educational kits, and classroom tools. The company, founded in 1971, is headquartered in Pittsburg, KS.
