All that time and effort we put into scaring those creepy crawlers away and now someone has gone and gotten all counterproductive on us creating a spider that–eeeek–has an ecological conscience.
The Salt Water Fuel Cell Spider is a robotic arachnid that not only teaches kids and parents about green energy, it shows them that learning can be fun. This eco-friendly insect is powered by homemade salt water so no batteries are required–score one for the green side! After assembling the spider, the fuel cell module is activated with a few drops of the salt solution, prompting the metal sheets inside to send the little critter scurrying about for hours of creepy, crawly entertainment.
Engaging both their minds and motor skills, children participate in all aspects of construction and fuelling, making Salt Water Fuel Cell Spider a total learning experience. And all materials in the kit are environmentally safe and non-toxic, so score two for the green!
This cool science toy is a great gift for girls and boys eight years and up, and makes a wonderful learning tool for classroom and home education.
