In this workshop students will learn to make a solar cap.
Students learn about Solar Energy creating their own solar cap. Students will study the solar energy, solar Panel & use of solder gun. In this lesson, students will conceptualize and then turn their ideas into real-life models.
Solar panel 3V
– Glue gun &glue stick
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.
teacher note- Tell them brief concepts of Solar Panels & how solar energy convert into electricity by using Solar Panels, what are the ratings of solar panels. In summer season there are lots of heat & light is available. We can made solar cap for surviving in summer from heat when we are outside of home.
Show them video of how exactly solar panel works, components or material involved in solar panel
Take measurement of fan & how much space for mounting the motor. After this cut the cap.
Discuss with students on the idea of solar cap in which using solar panel fan turns on.
See connection diagram from attachment.
make sure students make connection & soldering properly.
After connection introduces them solar panel & other electronics component.
Do connection as per connection diagram provided
Teacher note- Encourage students to do solar cap testing by going out side the room. Students will observe how fan speed is varying according to sunlight falling on the solar panel
