EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

Introduce kids to the power and potential of solar energy with the Build-Your-Own Luci Solar Light Kit. This includes everything kids need to build their own solar-powered light. The only thing not in the box is the sun.

The light is made up of three detachable disks surrounded by a transparent dome. The solar panel and battery connect via USB cable to light up the customizable LED light board.

The Quick Start section of the instruction booklet easily walks kids through building the light. But the rest of the booklet goes deeper into the science behind how it all works. The five different activities, including placing the solar panel out in the sun to charge and store up energy, are designed to help kids better understand the sun, the history of solar power, how famous scientists have used solar power, electricity, magnets, and more.

Is It Fun?

We were really impressed with how easy it was to get started with this kit and how engaging the instruction booklet was for kids. This is especially good news for kids who think that science is too hard or boring. The Quick Start section in the booklet is great for those kids who just want to get right to it. But they also have the option to go more in depth with the other activities. This does a great job of introducing STEM concepts to kids in a fun and hands-on way.

Who It’s For

The Build-Your-Own Luci Solar Light Kit is for ages 7 and up. It will definitely appeal to kids who enjoy science, but it's also easy enough to do for any kid.

What To Be Aware Of

The kit comes with a light board, a battery, a solar panel, a top cover, two USB cables, 16 LED pegs (red, green, blue, and white), and an activity book.
