Making the solar system

Got this fantastic solar system kit from Amazon. Assembled and painted by myself and my 6 year old lab assistant. Great fun researching the planet sizes, colours and order from the sun. Not overly expensive and the pack comes with two solar system kits.

Solar toys (inputs and outputs)

Just got this great little solar toy from Amazon. It can be made into six different devices, we set it up as a fan (input=solar or sun, output=the blades turn). Next we will try the solar powered robot on wheels.
