Instructions

  • Measure the power generated from the solar panel at 10 angle intervals.

  • Record this information on the Data Collection Sheet.

  • When you collect the needed data, graph the results on the Data Sheet.

  • Keep the flashlight in the same position throughout the testing.


Data Collection Chart

Record your measurements next to the angles as you measure them.

Before class begins, get a notecard and answer these two questions about your research in lesson 1:

  • What angles generated the most solar energy?

  • Why do we need to know this to design our solar panel?


Marketing plan
Marketing Plan

  • Develop a marketing plan for convincing the of the class that your solar panel is the best.

  • Decide on your selling points.

  • Prepare a brief (2-3 minute) presentation.

  • Make your presentation short and to the point.
