Build a solar-powered robotic vehicle.

How do solar panels work? How can we convert and store solar energy? How can we use that energy to power a robot?

In this workshop, students explore the field of electronics and learn how to use renewable energy sources.

Students work with several basic electronic components and build simple electronic circuits on a breadboard. Afterwards, they face the challenge of constructing the chassis and electronic circuit of a solar powered robotic vehicle.

The aim of this workshop is to introduce electronics and engineering to students and to highlight the relation between Science, Technology and Engineering.
