Kaitlin’s Awesome Solarspeeder
For my BlueStamp starter project I built a miniature solar powered car from the sparkfun “solarspeeder” kit. I learned to solder in order to attach the parts (two capacitors, a diode, a transistor, and a voltage trigger) to the printed circuit board. I also learned the function of each part in the circuit and how the circuit worked as a whole. I was very excited the first time I held the car up to the light and the wheels started spinning. Building the miniature solar powered car was very fun; everything it taught me will definitely help me in my main project, a wind turbine.
