Children's Science Exhibit


I work in Olympia Washington as a scoutmaster for troop 418.

We are putting on some science workshops at the children�s science museum demonstrating how solar power works.  We have built two bicycle generators that the children pedal to convert mechanical energy to electrical energy.  Each bicycle drives a belt to an automotive alternator.  From the alternator we need to go to a high power spotlight which projects onto a solar panel, which in turn powers a slot car set, track.  There will be two slot cars, and two solar panels, each child has total control over the speed of his/her slot car so they can race by pedaling fast or slow.  
Solar panel electrical requirements: 6- 24Volts at  0.5Amps.

Any Ideas on how to get donattions?
