Physics Solar Workshop - Experiment Manual Sample Pages (PDF)

Did you know that in less than one hour the sun delivers as much free energy as will be consumed by earth's population for one entire year? Solar energy is not only unending, but the amount produced is staggering. As the cost for producing solar energy drops, and the costs of fossil fuel rise, producing energy from the sun will become more widespread. Give your children a working knowledge of this vast resource with Physics Solar Workshop.

Physics Solar Workshop takes the basic laws of physics to application by addressing the topic of solar power. Each kit includes a solar panel that connects to and powers various models. Focusing on photovoltaic cells, Physics Solar Workshop enables children as young as eight to get a real grasp of solar energy.

By building 12 models, like a solar-powered tractor, elevator, drawbridge, fan, airplane, and construction crane, as well as conducting 30 experiments, children will learn how solar cells transform light into electrical energy. There are 320 reusable parts, many of which slide or snap together. The 64-page book offers illustrated instructions for the projects. Ages 8 and up.

The 64-page manual offers illustrated instructions for the projects. Developed with Greenpeace in Germany.
