Students' Reaction

The students were very excited about the experiments and were eager to participate.

Questions I was asked

How are solar panels made?

Solar panels start with the raw material, silicon. Silicon is turned into a wafer, which is then made into a cell, which is then put into a solar panel in series.

Overall Impression

I was very impressed with the level of knowledge and their genuine interest and fascination with solar.
