The Greenex Solar & Salt Water Eco-Fan kit lets children create a robotic fan that runs on salt water and sunlight. It consists of everything they need to build the robot, except for the salt, water, and of course, sunlight. The instruction pamphlet is clear (although the font is a pretty small) and there's a hint sheet on the back. Once built, the fan actually works when the solar panel is pointed directly at the sun.

Although the fan looks cooler than the breeze is provides, the kids like to show it off to friends and explain how they built it and how it works. All in all, this is a fun sunny day project for youngsters who like learning how things are made, and see firsthand how alternate types of electricity are generated.
