In response to increasingly high electricity costs and the overall well being of our environment, advanced technologies in solar energy has made it possible for home owners and businesses to install Photovoltaic Solar Panels to convert sunlight to usable electricity and heat. With this in mind, we have designed this course for the inquisitive student that wants to gain an understanding of how different technologies using green or alternate energy can be used in the home. In this course, we will create our own model house made of Plexiglas and install an amorphous silicon glass solar panel to simulate how we can harness the sun's energy into one's house. The solar panel that we will be using will provide the energy used for all of our experiments. We will perform most experiments with solar energy stored in a battery that has been charged from our solar panel along with a re-useable solderless breadboard. The fully illustrated and detailed manual included in this course will introduce the student to some basic technology and fundamental concepts used in common house hold devices such as lighting, thermostats, fire alarms, and burglar alarms. In order to study these technologies, we are going to study solar panels, motors, fans, resistors, diodes, LEDs, switches, lamps and batteries. The easy-to-follow pictorial diagrams will guide the student through 26 chapters containing a variety of activities and useful experiments along with fun and interesting facts relating to solar energy.This course offers a hand on approach that is applicable for use in grades junior high up through college. All parts to create the model house, along with the necessary components, wires, breadboard, solar panel, and detailed instruction manual are included. No soldering or additional batteries required. Re-usable and safe to use. Skill Level 1Lab Contents:
