Engineer a Solar Bug!
Type: Expo Zone
The solar bug is made up of 3 main parts: a motor, a solar cell, and a toothbrush head. The solar cell stores up the energy from light and converts it into motion for the bug. We use a vibrating motor (one that is improperly balanced), which moves when it receives light. You can explore how the brightness of the light affects the motion of the solar powered bug.
