Practical Action Solar Kit
Electricity components which can be used to teach pupils about the use and benefits of solar power.
Includes batteries, bulbs and bulb holders, round buzzers, crocodile leads, meagre motors and solar cells. Can be used alongside the Solar Challenge downloadable resource from Practical Action.
A great resource for teaching STEM, the Solar challenge is a free downloadable resource available on the Practical Action website. During the challenge pupils investigate how to make different circuits including solar cells and how to calculate the power of appliances. They then investigate what different people in a village in Zimbabwe need electricity for and how a fixed amount of energy from solar cells could be used.
