Build a solar phone charger guided by Demand Energy Equality in STORE STORE.

Ever wondered just what goes on inside a solar panel? Ready to take clean energy into your own hands? Stumped by watts, amps and volts? Fascinated by the future of power?

If you are interested in discovering more, this very practical workshop will allow you to create a product to charge a phone (and other USB devices) from the sun. You will learn what energy is and what it can do, and gain a hands-on understanding of the electrical basics: current, voltage, and power.

Demand Energy Equality is all about helping people learn more about renewable energy by encouraging them to get their hands dirty and have a go at building things that can be inspirational and functional at the same time. Demand Energy Equality is build on a shared interest in designing and making things, coupled with a desire to get people thinking a bit more about energy and climate change. Encourage people to take a DIY approach and try things for themselves.

The workshop is open to a maximum of 10 participants (age 10+) on a first come, first served basis. Attendance at the workshop costs £55 (£45 students) with all proceeds supporting the SCHOOL SCHOOL after school club for local state school students.
