Students' Reaction

Every student who walked by participated in an experiment. There was a ton of great helpers filled with excitement.

Questions I was asked

Can you put solar on top of a car?

Yes, there are a few experimental cars that are completely run off solar modules. Additionally Toyota is trying to put solar on top of their Prius to see if it can help power the parts of the car’s systems.

Electric cars can also be charged from solar powered stations just like regular cars go to gas stations. There are a number of these stations throughout California. When you grow up we will need scientists who help invent even better ways to power a car from solar energy.

Overall Impression

Can't wait to go back next year at the Science Night!
