Lesson Description

The goal of this Solar Energy Lab Virtual Field Trip is to introduce students to how solar energy technology can have deep impacts on society and the environment by examining and comparing real-world examples of solar technology on Earth and in Space.

Central Question: How can solar energy technology have deep impacts on society and the environment?

Instructional Objective: Describe how solar energy technology can have deep impacts on society and the environment by comparing real-world examples of solar technology on Earth and in Space.

Learning Outcomes

  • Learning Outcome #1: Explain how photoelectric materials emit electrons when they absorb light of a high-enough frequency by examining electromagnetic properties and identifying visible lights place in the spectrum. (PS4.B)

  • Learning Outcome #2: Analyze the ways in which solar energy technology helps to solve real-world energy resources and climate change problems by describing the problem, matching it with a solar technology solution, and listing potential secondary & tertiary impacts. (HS-ESS3-4)

Prerequisites

  • None
