  • It only requires a few drops to put the truck in gear and moving around, and more drops can be added to the fuel cell for more play time. Test the Salt Water Monster Truck’s capabilities by setting up an obstacle course with multiple elevations. Experiment with different ratios of salt to water to see if a certain amount of NaCl makes the truck faster or more powerful as it goes up ramps and crashes through blocks. When children are finished, all they have to do is pull the salt water fuel cell out of the back of the truck and rinse the salt water off of it. Since salt eats away at magnesium, there are two extra sheets included in the box.

    The Salt Water Monster Truck uses an electrochemical cell for its power source. In this cell, you have anodes, cathodes, and electrolytes that convert chemical energy into electrical energy. With the fuel cell in this kit, you have magnesium (anode), a porous carbon sheet (cathode), and salt water (electrolyte). During the chemical reaction, the magnesium loses electrons to the chlorine in the table salt. This process causes hydrogen ions to be formed and to travel from the magnesium to the carbon sheet. This creates an electrical current that powers the monster truck.

  • The simple and safe chemical reaction of the salt solution with the magnesium strip showcase what the OWI Salt Water Monster Truck can do. Its unique body style can be locked in place or pivot at its center and has a shock system that allows the truck to sit higher or lower. With its full four-wheel drive abilities, this salt water truck can still apply full traction even when the wheels are on non-level surfaces and when moving from one surface to another, such as the tile to the carpet. OWI’s truck also has eight moving pistons in the engine that can situated in a V shape or flat position.

  • The Salt Water Monster Truck offers a great hands-on experience for young scientists to learn about alternative fuel. The ability for kids to modify the monster truck in order to conquer obstacles also allows unique problem solving opportunities.

Green energy powers OWI’s Salt Water Fuel Cell Monster Truck. There are no batteries required to bring the monster truck roaring to life, because it runs for about fifteen minutes on a few drops of salt water. All of the pieces snap together, so there is no need for glue, and the parts are molded in different colors, so there is no need for paint either. Mechanically minded children will enjoy the construction of the salt water monster truck, while everybody will be surprised how fast and functional the truck actually is. Once it is fully assembled, the salt water truck has some unique features that allow it to handle any terrain you place in its way, but it also switches easily from forward to reverse.
