Students learn first-hand how solar power is converted into motion
These tiny bugs use solar energy to power a vibrating motor. The vibrations travel down the legs, causing the critters to wiggle around. Encourage kids to get creative by painting, staining or coloring the wood bug bodies before assembly. No tools are required for building — batteries come presoldered to motors.
