In this activity (page 11 of PDF), learners compare the air pressure within a dark and a light bottle both heated by the sun, and discover that solar energy can be collected and stored in many ways
Racing with the Sun: Creating a Solar Car
Learners use engineering design principles to construct and test a fully solar-powered car. Solar car kits usually include a photovoltaic cell and motor; some include a chassis as well.
Solar Cell Simulation
In this activity, learners model the flow of energy from the sun as it enters a photovoltaic cell, moves along a wire and powers a load.
