Solar Panel Acitvity

Solar Panel Activity / Biochemistry / 9th grade / Making Solar Energy Economical

This is a fun activity for 9th graders of any science class designed to get students thinking about the relation between incident light and current/voltage produced in a solar panel.  Students use solar panels hands on and measure current / voltage under various conditions.  The students also power a miniature device with the solar panel (light/motor/etc).
