“What an awesome group this has been, amazing project thankyou! ” Parent
The final two hour session with our Blue Peter Solar Panel project team was very busy bring everything together!
solar cells were glued to the etched glass, the tabbing together was finalised before we fully encapsulated the cells, wired them up to a transformer and and put them into their frames.
It was a nerve-wracking moment wondering if they actually worked and given it was dark outside we couldn’t test them! But fortunately Poppy’s tortoise came to the rescue lending us its heat lamp which was just right for making sure the kids had done the job.
Fingers crossed that Blue Peter will like the one the kids made for them and hopefully they will get their Blue Peter Badges soon.
“So inspiring and exciting!” Parent
