    Thames & Kosmos Eco-Battery Vehicles Science Experiment Kit:

    • It's becoming increasingly inevitable that electric vehicles (EV's for short) will be the cars of the future
    • More specifically, battery electric vehicles (or BEV's) — which are powered entirely by rechargeable chemical cells — are starting to become practical
    • Many major auto manufacturers have BEV's in development, and a few already have BEV's on the road today
    • Challenge in making BEV's a viable transportation solution is the battery
    • Batteries must be easy to recharge, able to hold enough charge to drive long distances and more efficient than gasoline engines
    • Scientists and engineers around the world are tackling this battery challenge, and major progress is being made
    • In this kit, you can build and experiment with a new type of environmentally friendly "fuel cell" to learn about electrochemical cells and BEV's
    • Battery is a metal-air electrochemical cell, a type of battery that is widely used in small scale devices
    • It is ideal for demonstrating battery technology because it does not use any harmful chemicals: it uses only magnesium plates, salt water and the oxygen in the air to generate electricity
    • Moreover, magnesium is considered an eco-friendly renewable fuel because it could be harvested cleanly from ocean water
    • Build 20 different models and power them with this special battery
    • Experiment with different concentrations of salt to see how long your battery can run
    • Learn about electrochemistry and battery technology
    • 1 metal plate lasts as long as a regular AA battery (6 plates included)
    • Full-color, 64-page experiment manual
    • 91 building pieces
