Solar USB Charger

Solar USB Charger

The Solar USB Charger unit guides students step-by step through the process of building a solar USB charger. Students gain an in-depth understanding of solar science as a well as basic electrical circuitry. By constructing a solar USB charger, students can gain experience in soldering and electrical circuits as well.

In addition to solar science, this curriculum provides relevant background information on energy sources, the carbon cycle, the greenhouse gas effect, and climate science. These topics are used as the basis for how a solar USB charger would benefit the environment.

Students will complete the construction of a solar USB charger that has the ability to charge devices with a USB connection.
