Explore solar energy with this innovative science kit designed to help students investigate energy transformations. A hinged box helps students discover how the angle of photovoltaic panels relative to the sun affects power output. Compare your experimental findings to online sun-angle calculators.
Three solar panels allow you to explore series and parallel circuits. Learn about the effect of important variables in photovoltaic systems, such as the effects of shade, temperature, and load on solar panel output. Harness energy from the solar panels to pump water or power a small motor.
Box dimensions: 13 1/8 in x 7 5/8 in x 4 ½ in
Maximum power output: 1.2 W (6 V x 200 mA in series, or 2 V x 600 mA in parallel)
