After the Generator Bike, the Solar Power Case forms the second
stage of Christiani's overall didactic concept in the field of renewable
energies. Instead of muscle power, the Solar Power Case lets the sun work for
With the Solar Power Case the student can generate his own solar
power via a solar module and store it in the battery or use it in different
circuits via the other components. In this way, well-founded knowledge about
solar power generation and the components of solar power island technology is
conveyed and deepened in a playful way.
In addition to the simple basic equipment, the extended
basic equipment includes the "Buzzer" module stone, two digital multimeters on a
magnetic base plate and a halogen spotlight on a tripod .
Understanding photovoltaics simply and quickly
Through application and experience-oriented learning, the experiments make it
possible to understand the connection between the sun as an energy source and
energy conversion and use based on photovoltaics.
The construction of the case and the connection of the module components is
an easy and playful introduction to electrical and solar technology. The
charging of an accumulator by means of a charge controller, the installation of
a motion detector as well as first voltage and current measurements bring the
first feelings of success besides the construction of simple circuits.
With the Solar Power Case, both the teacher can present the technology in
theory and practice, and students and groups of students can acquire the
practical basic knowledge of photovoltaics largely independently!
School projects can be planned and presented for decision-making processes
with the Solar Power Case, for example for solar display case lighting or
mains-independent equipment room lighting, etc. In addition to direct use in
class, parents, other schoolmates and visitors can use the Solar Power Box to
find out about the possible applications of photovoltaics at school festivals
and project days.
The Solar Power Case consists of a sturdy functional case (in which all
components can be safely stored), a solar module for power generation, module
stones and cables for the construction of various solar power applications and
