How Photocells Work

Give small groups of physical scientists tokens that represent electrons in a photovoltaic cell. They play a dice game in which they move the tokens around, representing the flow of electrons through the p-n junction of a semiconductor in order to light a bulb. A student handout is provided to explain the game. This resource is geared toward middle or high schoolers.

Jesenia R.
Lesson plans are so much easier to write with all the ideas I get from Lesson Planet. As a student teacher I really appreciate the ideas and experience I can get from other teachers.
