Solar-powered, robot-building Mini Solar Kits from OWI® Inc., offer an affordable, hand-on way to teach creative thinking, problem solving, and a love of science.
The kits, with suggested retails from $10.95 to $19.95, are activated by a mini solar panel, powered by outdoor sunshine or indoor halogen lighting.

The 6-in-1 Educational Solar Kit allows children to snap together 21 parts to create six different working models including an airboat, windmill, puppy, and two different planes. The kit was named one of Dr. Toy’s 100 Best Children’s Products, and 10 Best Educational Products in 2009.
