This Solar Kit Lesson #11 - Power Maximum: An Electrical Determination lesson plan also includes:
- Join to access all included materials
Collaborative groups connect resistors and solar panels in series and measure electrical resistance, voltage, and current. The objective is to order 16 solar panels from strongest to weakest. They graph current-voltage and power curves as well. This lesson gives learners experience in problem solving and critical thinking in addition to helping them identify variables that might affect the output of a solar panel.
