Solar Technology Curriculum: Introduction


Sunlight is a renewable source of energy for Earth. The demand for cleaner energy sources and the development of strategies to harness the sun’s energy has led to an explosion of technology worldwide. Now, you can become part of the clean energy boom with this solar technology curriculum, feating four in-depth and hands-on lessons for educators to use in their classrooms to teach solar technology to a new generation.

Using Models to Investigate Solar Thermal Technology


The sun provides energy to earth via light and heat. Humans can harness that unlimited clean energy to power our world through a number of methods. In this lesson and activity, students will construct their own solar thermal tubes to determine what materials most efficiently transfer solar energy.

Building a Solar Photovoltaic Array by Exploring Series and Parallel Circuits


Solar panels are typically placed deliberately to maximize energy output, but how exactly does the layout of an array, or, more accurately, the circuit, affect the energy output of solar cells? In this activity, Students will experiment with different cicuit types and layouts to determine the optimal design for greatest energy production.

Using Real-Time Data to Relate Solar Energy Production to the Sun’s Location


The sun is an infinite source of clean energy, but it can be difficult to capture all of its energy because it moves across the sky, meaning that a position that may optimize energy production in the morning may not be very efficient in the evening. As such, solar arrays are designed to maximize output throughout the day and year. In this activity, students will use real-time data to learn how solar panel placement affects its energy production and use that knowledge to design their own arrays for a given location and season.
