Explore how solar power is converted into motion with a solar bug.
- Simple to build, no special tools needed
- Perfect for makers of all ages
A 2 V solar cell connects directly to a self-stick vibrating motor causing this bug to wiggle around when placed in direct sunlight. This project allows students to flex their creative muscles, while also learning about solar power, motion, and vibration. We recommend personalizing the solar bugs by painting or coloring the cardstock before assembly.
