Description

Class Experience

Students will learn about:
- The different types of solar energy (thermal energy, light energy)
- Inventions that utilize solar thermal energy 
- Inventions that utilize photovoltaic solar cells
- How silicon photovoltaic cells work on an atomic level
- The pros and cons of solar energy
- How inventors continue to develop new ways to utilize solar energy
We're dedicated to introducing young students to the amazing world of quantum physics, technological innovation and design! We've been offering STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Math) classes and creating educational materials for students of all ages for over 15 years. We're excited to share this course content with more students through Outschool. 
No required homework assigned, but students will be given suggestion for further exploration. 
 1 file available upon enrollment
Handouts will be provided by the instructor, discussing solar thermal (heat) invention and showing the inner workings of a solar photovoltaic cell. In addition, if students have any solar energy devices at home, they can bring these to show to the class (optional).
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Learner progress will be assessed through class participation and a fun, humorous end-of-class quiz. 
50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
