Solar Kit Lesson #6: Solar-Powered Battery Charger
In a previous lesson plan, learners build an ammeter. That ammeter, or a pre-made one, is required in order to carry out this lesson plan. The objective is for lab groups to design a way to connect solar cells that can recharge a battery. Basic concepts are presented in a worksheet, and then learners are turned loose for the inquisition. Add this electricity lesson plan as an enrichment for more eager upper elementary or middle school scientists.
