DIY Solar Charger workshop - Crystal Palace


DIY Solar Charger workshop - Crystal Palace


This booking is for a DIY Solar workshop on September 7th at the Paxton Centre on Anerley Hill, opposite Crystal Palace station.

Ever wondered just what goes on in 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 knowing more about renewable energy systems, this one day, very practical workshop, will allow you to create a small solar power generator 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 4.30pm (or maybe sooner, depending on how the day goes).

  • All materials are included.

  • No previous experience required.

  • Includes free lunch from the Paxton Centre cafe.
