Power House Kit
Build and Experiment with a Miniature Model Alternative-Energy House.
Power House: Experiments in Future Techniques provides an engaging introduction to regenerative energy sources
while learning basic concepts and principles in physical science. The kit focuses on the heat and light energy from
the sun, the energy from the wind, as well as with electrochemical and plant energy. You will learn how to
transform and use these forms of energy.
With this Thames & Kosmos Power House kit you can build a model house complete with solar panels, windmill,
greenhouse, and desalination system. You can build and operate an electric train, windmill, solar cooker, solar hot
water tank, hygrometer, electric motor, power hoist, sail car, and more! Plant watercress, prepare sauerkraut, and
make chewing gum. Learn how plants convert sunlight into energy for your body and your engines.
The thoughtfully designed series of experiments were developed by physicist Uwe Wandrey. Professor Wandrey
creatively integrates physical science and technology lessons with the adventure of building a home and living on a
remote island. To survive, you must learn how to harness the power of the sun and the wind as well as tap the
energy of other physical forces. The storyline follows the experiments in a stepwise fashion. Easy-to-follow
activities make it fun to build models and use them for your experiments.
Ages 12 and up, soldering is not required.
