Throughout this unit, students will investigate solar energy as a source of electricity. They will be able to explain how solar energy is collected and how it is converted into electricity in order to power common everyday objects. They will also learn why solar energy is a more sustainable way of generating electricity than other sources still used today. Students will be able to identify both the benefits and limitations to using solar energy. Finally, students will have hands on experience collecting and generating solar energy as they produce their own solar powered object.
