In this workshop students will learn to make a Solar based PVC Pipe table lamp.
Students learn about Solar Energy creating their own Solar based Pipe table lamp. Students will study the solar energy, solar Panel, use of solder gun & PVC joined. In this lesson, students will conceptualize and then turn their ideas into real-life models.
Learning Objectives are
· To introduced about solar energy & solar panels.
· Introduction to basic electronics components, its working & connections.
· PVC pipe & its Various Joined.
· To make solar Cap using basic electronics & solder gun.
– Solar panel 6V
– T Joined
– insulation tape
– Glue gun &glue stick
– Solder Gun
– Wire cutter/stripper
Discuss with students about all renewable & non-renewable energy resources. Start discussion about why to use renewable energy? Tell them advantages of using solar energy.
Ask students to list our equipment they seen which runs using renewable energy
Tell them brief concepts of Solar Panels & how solar energy convert into electricity by using Solar Panels, what are the ratings of solar panels.
Show them video of how exactly solar panel works, components or material involved in solar panel.
Teacher Note- Discuss with students on the idea of PVC pipe Table lamp in which using solar panel,Resistor. Give PVC pipe pieces and different joints to students, to make any shape of table lamp.
Connect the things as shown in circuit diagram see attachment named as "connections"
Teacher Note – After connection introduces them solar panel & other electronics component.
Now After assembling the whole unit , student need to test it to understand its functioning.
