Cold Room? Heat it Up With a Homemade Solar Air Heater (SBD-5265-KIT)

Price:   $100.70   

We have a need to keep warm, but burning fossil fuels to create energy is harmful to the environment. What if there was a way to warm our homes that was green and it was free? Kit includes all you need to construct a solar air heater for harvesting the suns energy. Use the included compass to find a south facing window. We’ve also included black gesso paint, a 12” thermometer and special tape that won’t damage the paint on your walls when you remove the air heater. How hot can you heat air using a solar air heater? Take advantage of the Sun's power to find out!

Kits contain tested materials to ensure that you have what you need to successfully complete your science project, have fun, and learn some science along the way!
