Cost Effective Solar Cells: Solar Panel Data Sharing
- Students will analyze and share out power generation results with classmates
This lesson is designed to be completed in one 40-minute section. The teacher will facilitate the sharing of student solar panel data from indoor and outdoor testing with fans, music circuits, LEDs and any other combinations that were constructed. Teachers will guide students in making connections to basic circuitry and solar cell power generation limits. Teachers should facilitate discussion leading toward the most efficient solar panel arrays based on power generation needs, loads, and environmental conditions.
