Students' Reaction

There was a tremendous response for volunteers to run all of the energy and solar experiments.

Questions I was asked

Does solar work when it is cloudy or at night?

If you can see clearly, then there is enough light for the solar module to produce electricity. So when it is cloudy, solar modules definitely produce electricity, but just not as much as when the sun is shining directly on them. At night, there is not enough light for solar modules to generate electricity.

Overall Impression

The energy and excitement from the students was contagious and motivating.
