View Resource Inside a Solar Cell

Based on a NOVA Online lesson, Teachers' Domain presents this interactive activity that provides reading material and animations to help students learn the basics of photovoltaic cells, including how a solar cell converts solar energy into electricity and the components of the unit (silicon layers, metal backing, antireflective coating, and metal conductor strips). On the site, visitors will...

View Resource Dye-Sensitized Nanocrystalline Solar Cell

This document, created by Pennsylvania State University and hosted by the Nanotechnology Applications and Career Knowledge Network, serves as a guide for a laboratory activity where students "fabricate a photoelectrochemical cell, measure the UV-vis absorption spectra of the dyes used to construct the device, and determine the current-voltage and power output characteristics the completed d...

View Resource Dye-Sensitized Solar Cells

This lesson from The Lawrence Hall of Science was taught in spring 2012 and teaches students about nano and environmental technologies. Students will create "dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSC) using nano-crystalline titanium dioxide." This page includes links to the Source Articles for the Hands-on Module and Project Staff Write-ups of the Hands-on Module. Additionally, five documents provide...

View Resource Learning for Clean Energy Innovation

This document from the Advanced Technology Environmental and Energy Center (ATEEC) aims to assist teachers in renewable energy instruction. Three lessons are included: "Batteries and Bulbs," "Measuring Current and Voltage," and "Factors that Effect the Power Output of a Solar Cell." Analysis questions for students are included. Users must download this resource for viewing, which requires a...

View Resource Florida Solar Energy Center: K-12 Curricula

This website contains nine sets of curriculum materials on renewable energy sources, organized into units of instruction for Grades K-2, 3-5, 6-8, and 9-12. In the High Energy Hydrogen units, students investigate how a fuel cell converts energy directly into usable electric power and why the process is pollution-free. The award-winning Solar Matters collection includes manuals for building a...
