All Call to Take It Off the Grid

Students will explore the the electric grid and smart grid. They will compare and evaluate the advantages and disadvantages of the current and future power systems. They will focus their exploration on Photovoltaic energy (solar).  Armed with this background knowledge students will explore the features of commercial solar phone chargers and use this research to design their own solar chargers. As an extension students will build their own solar chargers. This mini unit may be done as stations or small group activities.
