GREENEX® "connects to the environment" motivates learning today and conserving tomorrow. Encouraging everyone to take part in learning how to protect the environment they live in and to have fun at the same time.
What can I build with this kit?
Move your robot forward or back with this electronic kit which even moves its arms. Find out just how you can control the direction of movement both when you wire up the model and while you use it. Great fun to assemble with 25 pieces and good for the environment with no need to use batteries. Harness the power of the sun or make your own energy through movement with the hand crank generator.
How does it work?
The robot is powered by either a solar panel or a hand generator. Solar power gathers energy from light and uses it to excite electrons in the panel to produce energy which makes the robot move. The hand power generator is a dynamo, a device that uses kinetic (movement) energy to induce electricity. Turn the generator one way to move the robot forwards and the other to reverse. Both of these power supplies produce direct current (DC) power which has a constant polarity. This means you can make the robot reverse by turning the hand generator in the opposite direction or change over the wire of the solar panel.
Learn and play with Greenex
Greenex demonstrates how to create fun electronic kits that run on renewable power sources. No soldering, glue or even batteries are required. The Greenex kit encourages environmentally friendly electronics, demonstrating alternative power sources in a fun and exciting way.
This kit should be used with adult supervision and assistance and is suitable for children aged 8 and over.
Do not connect both power supplies at the same time as this may damage the solar panel.
