PCM Wk 9 Final: Light + Filter Experiments

Experimenting with Lights and Filters 1.) First we prepared our equipments, filters and notes. Equipments include: a laser pointer, an LED flashlight, polarizing filters, solar panels, color filters. 2.) Next was experimenting with the polarizing filters to manipulate the amount of light that passes through. Polarizing filters may give us more range than neutral density […]

PCM Wk 8: Final Project Proposal

Idea: Solar Energy Learning Table I aim to create an interactive learning table and display that helps myself and others better understand how solar panels work and how energy is converted into electricity. Objectives:  1.) Learn about the science of solar cells: how light is turned into electrical energy through the use of semiconductors. 2.) […]
