DIY Solar Charger workshop - Dursley

Saturday 11/11/17 10:00 - 17:00

Dursley Library May Ln, Dursley GL11 4JH

If you are interested in knowing more about renewable energy systems, this one day, very practical workshop, will allow you to create a product to charge your phone (and other USB devices) from the sun, that you can take home at the end of the day. You will learn what energy is and what it can do, and gain a hands-on understanding of the electrical basics: current, voltage, resistance, power, and series and parallel circuits.

During the workshop you will build your own solar panel from reclaimed materials, learn how to test it, and connect the charging components required to provide power on the go.

Our facilitators will guide you through the making process, while exploring the energy challenges we are facing, and what possible solutions might look like.

The workshop will start at 10am, and finish at 5pm (or maybe sooner, depending on how fast you can solder).

  • All materials are included.
  • No previous experience required.

There may be an additional booking fee if less than 10 people book in advance. We will need at least 6 participants for this workshop to go ahead.
