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.
