Solar SPRK+ Lesson 4: Electricity Fundamentals and Photovoltaics
- Students will determine how to create various types of circuits in order to power loads with different electric needs.
- Students will identify the electric needs of a Sphero charger and build a circuit needed to charge this device.
Students work through a number of solar circuit explorations that culminate in a challenge to charge the Sphero SPRK+ devices with solar panels. In this exploration, students will investigate the requirements of various loads, working toward the voltage and amperage requirements presented specifically by the SPRK+ charging station.
