Effectively show how the ANGLE of light changes the amount of energy reaching Earth!
You will need solar cells, small motors, and flashlights. Having protractors would be helpful, but a protractor is printed on the back of the worksheet just in case.
This is a QUICK little activity designed to demonstrate how the angle of light affects the amount of energy absorbed by the solar cell. It isn't a traditional lab with hypothesis, data collection, etc. It is simply instructions and a few analysis questions.
