Test the efficiency of a solar panel, under varying light conditions.
Ages 8 - 12+
Learning outcome: Solar power is energy which comes from our sun. This energy is very powerful and reaches the earth continuously. Even the tiny percentage of sunlight that touches the earth is more than enough to meet the energy needs of the entire human population by more than 8,500 times over!
Experiment Method Description: Test the efficiency of a solar panel, under varying light conditions. Observe the rotation speed of the propeller and compare it when the model is placed indoors, under shaded area and under direct sunlight.
Components: Solar blade, Engino parts, plastic skins and paper outlines, sunlight.
