Information for Teachers and ParentsDear parents and teachers,
This website designed for children ages 8 to 13 years to promote learning by experimental work and discovering. As an example the SolarBiker model teaches scientific and technical principles of solar power generation (photovoltaics) and its applications at an age appropriate level.
The children can assemble the SolarBiker with the provided components through trial and error. When a working model of the SolarBiker is assembled and its pedaling speed is determined, then further tests can be conducted such as determining how to increase or decrease the pedaling speed. For this purpose, there are multiple gear combinations and the sunlight input for the solar cell can be varied.
Please contact us if you have any questions or comments concerning this webpage (see Contacts).
