Product Description

Learn all about global warming with the ScienceWiz Energy kit. Discover what energy is, how it is generated today and what choices await us in the future. Build a solar car and join the race to save the planet! Build a solar racer, launch a supercapacitor car, make an electric car, spin a flywheel generator, build a battery to light an LED, do a kinetic chain reaction, store potential energy on your head, discover how solar cells work, and focus the suns energy with lenses - all in with one kit. WOW!

Step-by-step, highly visual instructions lead a child successfully through each of the 22 activities. The full color illustrations present central scientific concepts which allow children to discover the "why" as well as the "how" of these great projects. Bring the fun and learning further by utilizing the animations that compliment the book on the ScienceWiz website to deepen and extend comprehension.

The award winning ScienceWiz line got its start in 1995 when we released our first title ScienceWiz Electricity. Our line of science kits stemmed from Dr. Penny Norman's volunteer work teaching science in her children's elementary schools and her ScienceWiz after school and summer programs. With initial development supported by grants from the National Science Foundation and the Franklin Foundation, each of our kits is created with the goal of teaching fundamental scientific concepts to children through hands-on play. From our offices in El Sobrante, CA we work hard towards our goal of providing children a basic foundation in science. Each new title we release is focused on a distinct topic. With so many disciplines in science, our work may never be finished!

It helped them to understand and appreciate the science.

It was a great kit with instructional book and all supplies needed for the project.
keke
It also implies that all energy needs can be met, TODAY, with solar and wind.

I purchased this for my son's science project last year. Believe or not, he came in first place. He demonstrated how solar power can be used and how it is not a reliable sorce of enegy (during certain wheather conditions). He came in forth place at the county level.

Most of the wires are only 2 hair-size strands. My 9 yr old mentee had difficulty inserting wire in motor terminal holes. Wires likely to break. A larger solid wire would make threading the motor terminal easier. LED light was missing so we did not make a vinegar battery. Base of battery powered car is very flimsy (we will glue a popsicle stick under it to prevent buckling), but the car worked very well. Solar powered propeller worked very good when sun came out, and any shadow stopped the prop. Good educational experience about power of sun. Solar cell produced 0.56 volts DC in bright sun. Prop would not turn under a kitchen spot light. We had difficulty identifying the large capacitor. A small switch between solar cell & motor would help.

We had a good time Energy Wiz: The Race to Save the Planetgetting started with this kit. Guide book is very helpful listing parts. My mentee has younger brother & sister, so he did not take it home. Followed the warning about small parts.

I bought this for my son, 3th grader. He chose it by looking at the box cover. When he received it, it disappoints him. He was expecting the box ingredient would be the same as cover.

The information about physics and solar are good. But my son got bored after a while I explained to him. I think it has too much info for him. Half of the parts look very CHEAP. That is one reason which loses attraction. But the motors and the capacitors are really good. I think it could have been improved to be more attractive to kids.

In summary, it is more like lab experiment kits. If it can be improve to attract young kids like my son. But anyway, the cover needs to be changed. It looks like false advertisement.

My son picked this for his 5th grade science project. It was a great kit with instructional book and all supplies needed for the project. We completed the project and it was super easy due to this kit.

6 of 8 people found the following review helpful By avid reader on September 30, 2012
Format: Paperback
The pamplet does a good job of explaining what energy is, energy state (kinetic and stored), energy cannot be created or made, etc. The project building part of the book is misleading. Only one project can be built at a time because the parts are reused and the picture on the front is not one of the projects at all. The solar cell does work well and is a good demonstration of solar energy conversion.
The rest of the pamplet is very one sided and presents a negative picture of Hydroelectric, Fossil Fuel, and Nuclear power. Dams kill fish, fossil fuels pollute the environment and kill people, and no one should ever consider nuclear. It also implies that all energy needs can be met, TODAY, with solar and wind. It does not paint an accurate picture of either side of the energy debate. I realize that this book is geared toward children and written at their level, but it comes off as propoganda.
I was looking for a book about ENERGY education, not a political call to action.

This product really helped my 10 year old son gain an understanding of circuitry. BEWARE though, the wires do get hot and smoke if they cross or stay hooked up too long. Highly reccomend with some parently supervision.

By Dennis on April 27, 2014
Format: Paperback
We ordered the solar car for a 3rd grade solar energy experiment. We did 10 reps on a 2 m course with a stop watch so we could create a speed baseline at 10, noon, 2 pm, 4 pm, and 6 pm. We used weights and the mirror at 4 and 6 pm. Controlling for experimenter variation took some practice and learning by father and son (age 9). The problem with this experiment is that the components of the car have no means of attaching security. My son used scotch tape but the wires connecting the solar panel to the motor frayed and were insecure. The motor moved around with the slightest touch. The firmness with which the motor engaged the left axel gear varied with multiple runs. So it is impossible to know what variations in time were caused by the directness of sunlight or the slight shifts in of the wire, motor, or pressure on the gear. As science, this experiment sucks. As a learning opportunity, it a learning opportunity about the importance for controlling for experimental errors, it had some value. The preliminary experiments fascinated my son and the booklet had value. But Norman & Globus Inc. need to find a way for the wires to connect better and a better system to connect the components. They will not be able to promote so many experiments in one package so their promotions will be less persuasive but their potential science would be enhanced. Neither my son or I would recommend this kit as currently constructed. M and Dad
