Frightened Grasshopper Robot Kit

grasshopper.jpg

This mini-insect kit runs on solar power. The Frightened Grasshopper may sound like something out of a bad David Carradine TV show, but can in fact perform either in direct sunlight or any light bulb that is not fluorescent. At about 2", your kids make it for a science fair project and you can use it to freak out the cat. The kit comes with a PV cell A motor, solar power panel and everything else to keep it hopping.
