The Solar Spark

The Solar Spark Project has been running very successfully for several years and includes workshops at science festivals and schools, training for school teachers, podcasts, animations, Facebook, twitter, press articles and more.

The kits from BrightSparks 4Kids are very well designed using durable 'plug in' style connections and good quality components. Children are able to use a real hands on approach to learning and quickly grasped the function and use of each component in a circuit. Read more....

Solar Investigations Unit

Create Sound, Light & Motion!


Used in-conjunction with a Solar Cell or power source of over 3Volts this large scale unit offers 3 different outputs to choose from and investigate.
  • Sound: Created by a 3V Buzzer
  • Light: Created by a large white 10mm L.E.D
  • Motion: Created by a low inertia Solar motor with safety spinner

 

The motor also has the ability to spin either forward or reverse by simply reversing the polarity of its connection to its power source. All components are clearly labelled with their respective electrical symbol. Safety features include a large safety style propeller with curved internal edges, securely mounted components and non-slip rubber feet. All connections are made with easy to use colour coded 4mm polarity sockets.

This unit can be used in conjunction with any BrightSparks module and also is an ideal Classroom demonstrator.This unit can be used with any power source including batteries, Solar cells, hand crank electricity generators, super capacitors, rechargeable packs, mini wind turbines and DC power packs

 

Please note this unit does not include a Solar Cell
