Collin’s Lab: Solar

Harness the power of the sun for – whatever! Solar technology may be commonplace, but converting light into electricity is still an amazing bit of magic. Join Collin as he explores what makes solar tick and it how it relates to other common components.

Thanks to the solar technology, it’s surprisingly easy to harness the power of our nearest star. Just add photons to a relatively simple silicon sandwich, kick back and watch the electrons hussle. Praise the sun!
