How Solar Panels Work

How Solar Panels Work

Rating
0.0 stars

In this lesson, students will learn that sunlight is the underlying component of energy use. Students will examine atoms as the basic building blocks of matter, including electrons, protons, and neutrons, and explore how these building blocks are used with the element silicon (Si) to produce energy. Students will perform two interactive activities to further their understanding of this concept. Finally, students will investigate careers in solar energy and report on the growing solar industry.

The Importance of the Sun: Solar Energy

Rating
0.0 stars

In this lesson, students will investigate the development and use of solar power. They will examine the role of the sun as a source of energy and explore how humanity has relied on the sun to provide energy for our lives. Solar techniques ranging from using sunlight to warm houses to the latest technologies like advances in photovoltaic solar power will be discussed. Students will explore pre-Industrial Revolution uses of solar energy and technological advances using a Solar Decathlon house as an example. This lesson will also cover the potential energy inherent in the sun’s daily output and include activities to enhance student understanding of our daily connection to the sun.

Rating
0.0 stars

Student participate in class activities which investigate energy and how it is produced, transmitted, conserved, and managed at local, national, and global levels. They will also analyze energy resources and examine ways to minimize human impacts on the environment, evaluate their personal use of energy and develop a plan for conservation, and explore modifications to improve energy efficiency by reducing energy transfer to the environment. Students will use research and reasoning to empower their communities (home, school, and local) to adopt energy and money-saving practices.
