    It is always nice to learn new things. I am always curious how to create my own solar panel and this kit helps me a lot. The guide can easily be understood and is not complicated. Now I have been thinking to use more solar products to lessen my electricity consumption.

    This is a fun activity to do with your kids and at the same time you can educate them on how solar energy works. You may also teach them the benefits of using solar energy to humans and to the environment.
