Brown Dog Gadgets – Build Solar Bugs

August 12, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 10:30 am PDT

Create a solar powered insect that zips around and makes noise!

Learn about solar energy in a fun and creative way! The new solar bug design has students creating a simple solar circuit in minutes using only conductive tape! Cut out your bug, decorate it, then add the included solar cell and vibrating motor!

These bugs will zip around any smooth surface when in direct sunlight and make a silly clattering sound.
Materials Needed: Each Solar Bug Kit includes all the parts you need to create your own bug. Building a bug takes 5-10 minutes to construct, with additional time needed for decorating.

WATCH LIVE on the Family Maker Camp Facebook page or on the Kids Make: Youtube channel.

Brown Dog Gadgets was started by teachers for teachers. We create engaging STEM and STEAM products that don’t break the bank. We do everything from fun vibrating tooth brush Bristlebots to LEGO based electronics and programming! Check out our project live streams for tips, tricks, and special give aways!
