Build your own models powered by air and water pressure to learn about the laws of physics. This unique kit allows you to build two different air-and-water-powered systems: water-jet propelled cars and hydro-pneumo powered engines (which simply means air pressure and water pressure). The hydro-pneumo system uses a self-contained air-and-water turbine system as a motor.
Construct 15 models including a truck, excavator, radar car, tank, antique car, helicopter, motorbike, backhoe, rocket car, forklift, roadster, propeller plane, grinder, and cutting machine. The water-jet propelled cars are a fun outdoor activity, while the self-contained hydro-pneumo powered models are fun both indoors and out. Compete with your friends to see whose water-jet propelled car and hydro-pneumo car goes the fastest!
The 48-page color instruction book included in this kit illustrates the step-by-step assembly of each model and related principles so that children learn through playing. The 165 building pieces included in this set are compatible with those in all the Wind Power 2.0, Remote Control Machines, and Solar Power kits.
I bought this along with the Glow Lab for my niece and nephews ages 8-13. Mostly the older two dove right into it with some help from dad. Very cool and much fun for adults too! Just make sure you trim the hoses as directed in the manual or you'll lose too much energy to power it. Only minor con is that some of the parts didn't want to stay connected even when fastened properly, but it didn't damper the fun much!

Build wind-powered generators to energize your electric vehicles
and charge your rechargeable batteries. The wind spins the turbine, which turns an electric generator, which in turn charges your rechargeable AA batteries (not included). You can then use those wind-charged batteries ...
