Solar Load Kit

Solar photovoltaic panels can be used to collect sunlight and turn it into clean, renewable electricity. The Solar Load Kit includes a variety of loads (appliances) that can be run off of the included solar panels. Students can experiment making simple circuits that use solar panels to run fans, lights, and water pumps. Students can further explore current flow creating circuits in parallel and series using the included loads and multimeter. This kit is compatible with Solar Tilt Kit 2, which expands the opportunities for experimentation with an additional dozen solar panels and multimeters.

This kit includes:

  • 12 Solar Panels
  • Assorted LED and Incandescent Light Bulbs
  • Water Pumps and Tubes
  • Motors with Stands and Fan/Propellor Blades
  • Multimeter
  • Power Output Board
