This Salt Water Robot Kit is packaged simply and easy to remove from its small box. Inside the box the robot pieces are all in a plastic frame and must be removed from the frame to start building. The instructions include picture illustrations to help with the building portion of the robot kit.
Half the playtime with this toy is the building. The instructions do a decent job of walking you through the set up, although at times I did find them a little ambiguous. One the robot was assembled it was barely larger than the palm of my hand. In order to power it up you have to make a heavy salt water solution, meaning you will keep mixing salt in until no more will dissolve. Then if you assembled everything correctly the aluminum battery piece will active the small motor and off the little robot goes.
I really liked the building process of this robot, it was really cool to build something with my own hands that could be powered by something as simple as salt water.
The instructions were a bit ambiguous at times and that was a little disappointing to me.
Engineers and science lovers 8 and older are best for this Green Science kit.
Even though I did find some of the instructions vague and challenging I was able to successfully run my robot on salt water. I would recommend the Salt Water Powered Robot Kit as an inexpensive science and robotics experiment anyone will enjoy building.
