Ever wondered how solar technology works? In this workshop, you’ll learn how to harvest the sun’s magical energy & build your own working solar panel that can charge your phone. We’ll take you through a step-by-step tutorial of putting together a 6 watt panel, embedding it in a durable case, and attaching it to circuitry compatible with phone charging. We’ll also chat about the history of solar panels, the science behind energy harvesting, and the latest trends in the industry. Beginners welcome, no prior electronics experience necessary!
