The hands-on activity helps the students to decipher the elementary concept of solar energy, its advantages, and the conversion of it into mechanical energy to drive a car. Students will make their own solar-powered cars to understand the making of a vehicle from household materials and the working of solar panels to power it.

Learning Outcomes 

  • Preliminary concepts about renewable energy sources, their importance, and their application.
  • Fundamentals show how solar energy is converted into electrical energy and then into mechanical energy to drive a car.
  • The activity will also be helpful in understanding the laws involved in electricity generation and energy conversion from one form to another form.
