This session is part of the Department of Education Green Strides webinar series.
Target Audience: Grades 6 - 12
Presented by AESP Specialist: Brandon Hargis
This webinar will introduce participants to a Problem-based Learning Activity (PBL) that requires students to propose and defend a design to provide power to a lunar or Martian research habitat for six explorers. To prepare, students will investigate the variables that affect the operation of solar panels, learn about energy, power, and circuits, design a solar energy system to meet the power requirements for their own homes, and learn about the solar panels and energy use on the ISS.
