Photovoltaic Frenzy

When the sun is bombarding us with so much energy its caused our electrics and electronics to fizzle and burn out – you’d think that if we could just harness some of that daylight energy, we might be able to make up for losing the National Grid! In Photovoltaic Frenzy you can do just that!

Build machines, cars and robots that can race one another using only the power of the sun, but be careful you don’t end up in the valley of darkness – if the light can’t reach you, its going to be a dead end!


Also race to see how who can create the most Oxygen from just a scraggy old piece of pond weed!


Children must be supervised by parents/carers at all times.
