An entertaining educational kit demonstrating the concept of a salt powered automotive engine. It gives the next generation a look at alternative means of propelling cars of the future. It works with a combination of salt water and magnesium plates. When salt water is added it dissolves the magnesium to form hydrogen which is attracted to the cathode creating a flow of electrons. A detailed step by step assembly manual for connecting the myriad of components is included and the car engine can be configured as a V8 or flat engine. The cylinders also move up and down as the car moves forward. The finished vehicle is 4 wheel drive and the body will twist as it navigates its way over small pebbles and bumps. Watch a demonstration video on our website.
You may require the use of a side cutter and flat/phillips head screwdrivers
