Nanocrystalline Solar Cell Kit

0
Type: G, I, L    |    Level: AP, Coll, HS, MS

Our most popular kit! Students build their own Nanocrystalline Solar Cell, which operates by a process like photosynthesis. The cell generates electricity from absorption of solar energy by natural dye from berries. The solar cell has enough electrical output to power a small ­motor (not included). The kit provides an interdisciplinary context for students learning basic principles in chemistry, biology, physics, as well as environmental science. The...
