Thames and Kosmos welcomes Solar Powered Rovers to its range as demand for science kits surges

Thames & Kosmos has welcomed the arrival of a new range of Solar Powered Rovers to the product portfolio, a hotly anticipated range that found production delayed over the last few months owing to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The kit is suitable for children aged eight and upwards, and according to Thames and Kosmos sales director, Jo Drage, has been ‘eagerly anticipated by the company’s trade customers’ since its announcement. The eagerness is part of a reported increase demand for science kits that teach children over the past few months.

“We have seen a surge in the demand for good quality science kits which teach children about alternative energy in a fun and engaging way,” said Drage. “The Solar Powered Rover is the perfect present for any budding physicist and perfect to play and experiment with in the upcoming summer holidays. Kids will love the fun factor while parents will be assured by the quality and educational value of this nifty, mid-price range kit.”

Children can construct five motorized models, including three types of solar cars, a solar fan, and a solar robot model. They can also conduct science experiments with each model to learn about gear ratios, solar cells, and more. The ultralight materials, including strong bamboo rods, make your models speedy and durable. RRP is £15.
