Learn how to teach solar principles in effective, engaging ways in your classroom!

You’ll review and practice necessary safety measures and electrical principles. Finally, you’ll perform (and take with you) ready to use hands-on classroom lab activities that will enable you to bring solar energy to life in your classroom.
