  • Be among the first to build a high performance electric car
    that runs without a battery!

Using an ultra capacitor instead of a battery,
your car can accelerate almost instantly to race-car speeds.

Unlike batteries, ultra capacitors can be charged very quickly and
be recharged 100,000s of times without wearing out.

Kit contains an ultra capacitor, motor, wires, car base, car body, decals, wheels, axles, gears, washers and battery band.
You may want some SUPER GLUE to hold it all together as this car races away at impressive speeds and tends to ram into walls!

About the Author

Penny Norman

Penny Norman, Ph.D. earned a doctoral degree in Biophysics from U.C. Berkeley.

She became involved with the development of primary grade science materials through volunteer work, which she began as her own children started school. During this process she became deeply concerned about the limited exposure of elementary age students to the physical sciences. Dr. Norman's concern has translated into a 15 year effort to test and revamp science materials for the primary grades. Her work with children developed into a product line initially under the auspices of grants from the National Science Foundation and the Franklin Foundation. Her published titles reflect Dr. Norman's extensive testing and involvement with children and teachers and her love and commitment to both.

The ScienceWiz Books and Kits created by Dr. Penny Norman have received awards from Scientific American, Good Morning America, Dr. Toy, National Parenting Magazine, American Specialty Toy Retail Association, Creative Child Magazine and Woman's Day Magazine, to name but a few. The ScienceWiz line has also been covered by NPR radio on Science Friday and received accolades from the Women's Society of the IEEE.

A story she has heard often from consumers describes how much 5 and 6 year old children cherish the Electricity Kit. They will keep it under their pillows and continue to play with it for weeks. Mothers says their children are so attached to the kit because the visual instructions allow them to do the activities on their own.

About the Editor

Ann Einstein

Ann Einstein has been an elementary education teacher in the Berkeley Unified School District for many years. She has been involved with the education of children for most of her adult career as a director of early childhood education programs, as a teacher and coordinator of gifted and talented programs, and most recently as an elementary education teacher.

She has been an editor of the ScienceWiz books since 1994 when she edited the ElectroWiz Electricity book.

Anne has the capacity to see the world through a child's eyes and has been invaluable in keeping each science kit clear from a child's perspective.

To quote an Einstein of a earlier generation:

"We never cease to stand like curious children before the great Mystery into which we were born."
