Powered by the sun – no batteries required! Volta Racer uses advanced flexible solar technology to power its drive train. Volta Racer’s chassis, frame and wheels are made of super lightweight and durable recyclable materials. The axles are made of bamboo – a strong natural wood resource (Thomas Edison used bamboo as the light filament in the world’s first incandescent light bulb). Once assembled – let the sun power your fun.
Volta Racer ships to you as a DIY kit. Right out of the box – it requires nothing more than your bare hands and about 15 minutes of your time to assemble. The frame and chassis allows you to experiment with two different solar panel configurations and two speed gear modes. Parents and Teachers can use the Volta Racer to teach the basic principles of solar, renewable energy and mechanical engineering concepts to kids.
