About this Grantee

Ms. Nice and Mr. Kirchner’s students design and construct a solar powered charging station to learn the process and benefits of solar power and how it can be applied to AC power production related to residential wiring in their homes. Students learn about general layout, plan for location and equipment, and produce technical drawings, diagrams, and specifications. Gaining entrepreneurial exposure, students sell unused produced power from the station back to the local utility company.
