The students will observe a circuit with a solar cell under various light sources. They will measure the voltage and record their results in tables.

The instructions first include a photo and a list of the required apparatus and materials. Text and pictures explain the preparations for the experiment step by step. Then several assignments are presented: The students should express their guesses, conduct the experiment, and note down their observations.

Information and ideas:
• Observe the safety information in these instructions as well as in the teacher information related to the experiment and discuss them with your students.
• Also observe the applicable safety guidelines for your school.
