How To Build a Solar Powered Car for Your Kids



Here’s a little tricky experiment that you can do on your own at home. It’s very simple to do, all you have to have is a solar battery (you can buy that cheaply from a scrap store), a bottle, a toy with wheels you don’t need anymore, and a little bit of super glue.

It runs completely on solar power. Starting from this guy’s idea, I’ll try to improvise a method to recharge my remote controlled toy car from the sun (all big kids must have a RC toy handy, don’t they?)

So, watch the video and start teaching your kid little things. In time, they’ll become bigger and hopefully, if done on a larger scale, save our planet.

  1. The video does not seem to appear… What do i do?…. I need it urgently because i was doing a similar project and i am not stuck and this video seems to be able to solve it
    Plz someone help

  2. Great ideas, very helpful. I have been really nervous about helping my daughter out with her science projects, this is not something I have been looking forward to at all. Thank you for this post.

  3. Fill that bottle with water and you’ll see what is the problem with solar power: it’s not powerful enough. That’s why there’s not a single sun powered car to carry more than a person. It’s great for a science project but (unfortunately) it’s not applicable a real car.

  4. booyaa!!!!!!!!! first place science fair here i come!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  5. thank you so much this website really helped my science fair project(:(:(:(:(:(:(:(:(:(:(:(:(:(:(:(:(:(:(:(:(:(:(:(:(:(:(:(:(:

  6. Yo Yo Yo! hold the phone, this is cool alright but the only problem is that you cant turn that thing and it cant save the solar energy it just ate up and put it to waste.Now if you want a real car check out ma site in which you can know more about auto mobilos

  7. I think you should buid a car (for adults)that runs completly like a wind0up toy,the only difference would be that you could control the wind-up key.

  8. how long does it work and is it a good energy sorce and does it need sun or can it be like a modal car and do the wires please tell me

  9. just watched it again it was marvelous and a science fair for a fourth grade student with that project first place woo winners r us. lol

  10. Thanks 4 the tips! I am trying to figure out what science fair project i will do so i could really use all the help and resoces i can get! I will tell all of my friends and family about this website!
