Energy and Power/Solar Car Construction
Introduction to solar cells and how they work
Students will learn about solar energy and how a solar cell works. They will search the Web for Howstuffsworks.com to see how the solar cell is made. Next we will go on the web to research designs for the solar car bodies looking for the SunRaycers. We will discuss Aerodynamics. They will then form teams and design a solar car body. Next we will work on building the solar car to prepare for the final project, which is a solar car race.
