Solar Bug 2.0 Classroom Set 

Create a solar-powered insect that zips around and makes noise!

Learn about solar energy in a fun and creative way! The new solar bug design has students creating a simple solar circuit in minutes using only conductive tape! Cut out your bug, decorate it, then add your solar cell and vibrating motor! These bugs will zip around any smooth surface when in direct sunlight and make a silly clattering sound.

Each Solar Bug Kit includes all the parts you need to create your own bug. Building a bug takes 5-10 minutes to construct, with additional time needed for decorating. 

The Classroom Set comes with supplies for 25 bugs, and includes 2 card stock bug designs for each student to choose from. Additional designs and body parts can be printed off our website, as well as student activity pages and lesson plans.
