Tech Will Save Us Solar Thirsty Plant Kit | Educational Steam Toy, Ages 8 & Up*
The Thirsty Plant Kit is a fun, easy-to-make kit for kids, that teaches them how to build a solar-powered moisture sensor for their favorite plant. Using plaster of Paris, a few electronic components, and some solar panels, kids will make a sensor that tells them when their plant needs water. It’s the perfect introduction to building functional circuits and learning about sensors. And with our online MAKE platform, there are even more projects for kids to get stuck into.
How it works: 1. Make the sensor with the included plaster, nails, and tube.
2. Use the included components to build a circuit and add the solar panels.
3. Put your Thirsty Plant together and choose a plant
4. Try your hand at building a water bomb on our online projects platform
