SOLAR CELL PHONE CHARGER
Solar cell phone charger. Energy storing super condensators are using instead of battery. No regulator need.
- Period of implementation: 60-80 Hours
- Country where the practice was developed : Finland
- Provider of the practice : Salpaus Further Education - Lathi
- Targetg group: EQF level 5
How to implement the practice :
Student(s) plan PCB for super condensator module, makes needed number of module PCB:s, plans PCB for +5V regulator, build portable charging station to suitcase and install the solar cell to the cover of the suitcase.
Teacher must have a minimal experience in Arduino build-ups. Both teacher and students should know electronic basics and 3D-modelling basics.
Main learning outcomes from the practice :
Students get to understand robot coding of basic moves.
Students realize how waste material can be perfectly useful for engineering.
Needed/Suggested digital tools:
- - Arduino cc
- The practice was carried: : Hybrid online/classroom
Critical points to shift towards STEM learning and solutions:
Ensuring access to the boxes, tools and parts to be used.
Positive aspects of participatory learning :
Motivated students can make their best and more
Negative aspects of participatory learning:
Included green education (if any):
- - Solar energy
- - Recycled condensators
