    A: Hi Iain, The buggy is fairly simple to assemble, so should be able to be complete in around 30 minutes or less depending on the pupil. The buggy could be taken apart, however the motor clip has an adhesive backing so this would be stuck onto the Perspex plate after the first build. You could use Velcro or something similar to create a temporary fixing so it can then be removed. The only soldering that is required is the motor onto the solar cell, so 2 joints.
