Solar Electricity ~ The Colour Sensitivity of a Photovoltaic Cell

Teacher's notes, a materials list, detailed procedure, tips, and extension ideas are all included to make teaching this lesson on photovoltaic cells a sunny spot in your day! After some brief background reading, physical science apprentices measure the voltage output of a PV cell when exposed to different colors of light. A very nice set of student instructions and recording sheet are provided to guide them through the activity.
