Toy Lab Volta Racers are an exciting, effective and innovative product for teaching Kindergarten-5th Grade Next Generation Science Standards. STAR Education uses them to teach STEM Principles like Newton’s Laws, Simple Circuitry, Renewable Energy and calculating speed and distance.
Kinder-2nd: Pre build racers are used to teach students about light energy, motion, force and energy conversion.
3rd-5th: Students build the racers and experiment with mirrors and additional solar panels to see if extra reflected light and solar cells affect the speed of the car.
We also set up solar speed ways (racing tracks with a finish line) at our daytime science events where kids and families can learn about renewable energy and race the solar cars.
