Solar Kit Lesson #11 - Power Maximum: An Electrical Determination

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.

Lesson Planet has not only provided me with lesson plan ideas but it also has given me the inspiration to create more inquiry-based lessons for my Biology students.
