Designing Solar Panels
Students taking the Mechatronics course have been working on solar panel mounts that track and move with the motion of the sun in order to harvest as much energy as possible. Thanks to a generous grant from Infinite Energy and the GCPS Foundation, students were provided customized kits that let them combine elements of mechanical engineering, electronics, and programming through hands-on activities and projects from their homes. The solar panel designs are getting their final nuts and bolts installed and will be put to the test (and on the roof!) over the final weeks of the school year. They will be viewable from classrooms that overlook the roof section above the art patio.
