Alternative/Green Energy

With fossil fuel sources becoming scarce and increasing concern over pollution, it's becoming more important than ever to explore alternative sources of energy. The Rivet-Rex 12 Kit will teach your students how to engineer 12 different robots that use both solar and hydraulic power in harmony. The PowerWheel is a micro hydro generator - an amazing tool for teaching lessons about energy, hydropower and other renewable sources of energy. Use Solar Cells to power small motors or other electrical devices which draw small amounts of current.
