    K'NEX - Education Investigating Solar Energy is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for teaching kids about science I tried this set out with my boys (5 and 6 years old) and while they didn't get it yet, they had a blast building it.  The sets instructions are easy to follow and you get 128 total pieces to build with.  You can build up to two sets at a time.  The set is great to show kids about solar energy and start getting their minds thinking about science.  Since you are building specific models, I'd say this would be better for one child at a time.  I do love though how everything fits nicely inside the durable plastic container, which makes for easy storage. I received this product to review in exchange for sharing my honest opinion.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hot activities! I used this kit with my 3rd thru 5 graders as part of my renewable energy unit. The crank man was built by 4th graders, a bit challenging and a few class periods but they did it. The shuttle ride is very easy to build and quick. We had races with the solar car on the basketball court and they could see first hand how the angle of the sun affected the speed of the car. Great kit!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Solar Panel doesn't work We plugged the solar panel into the car for the first time Friday and nothing happened. I took the solar panel off the car and plugged it straight into the motor and nothing. Has anyone else had a problem? Does anyone know how to tell if the problem is in the panel or the motor? This was an expensive purchase for my class to not work.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty good I got this for Christmas two years ago. This set is very good but my solar panel isn't working. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
