Smart-E Workshop

Solar electric power is one of the fastest growing energy resources in the United States today. In this workshop you will engage in hands-on activities that will introduce you to the science behind solar energy while putting easy-to- use tools in your hands. Hands-on activities include evaluating performance of solar devices under a variable solar resource, applications of solar energy, and use of microcontrollers. These investigations are powerful vehicles to expose students to “difficult-to-hold-onto” concepts like energy conversion and transfer, electricity generation, and our energy future. You will leave this workshop with the knowledge, skills, and resources needed to introduce students to solar energy concepts. You can use the activities from the workshop with your students to get them excited about the smart energy systems.
