JOHNCO – THE SOLAR SYSTEM KIT
Why Is It Called The “Solar” System?
There are many planetary systems like ours in the universe, with planets orbiting a host star. Our planetary system is named the “solar” system because our Sun is named Sol, after the Latin word for Sun, “solis,” and anything related to the Sun we call “solar.”
Our solar system consists of our star, the Sun, and everything bound to it by gravity — the planets Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune, dwarf planets such as Pluto, dozens of moons and millions of asteroids, comets and meteoroids. Beyond our own solar system, we have discovered thousands of planetary systems orbiting other stars in the Milky Way.
This kit provides a hands-on lesson about how solar power drives a motor.
Children aged 10 years and over can learn how all eight planets orbit around the sun as they build, paint and bring their very own solar system to life by using motorized solar energy.
Build, paint and assemble the solar system.
Detailed instruction manual included.
Great space toys for kids above 10+ years.
