Learning Aims:
  • Introduce other electrochemical sources, such like a fuel cell
  • Introduce a photovoltaic cell

Internet sources, other sources about the fuel cell and a photovoltaic cell

Suggestions for use:

This activity can be carried out as a bounded inquiry. Students are given a task to prepare a presentation on the alternative electrical sources, like fuel cell and photovoltaic cell. They are expected to prepare a presentation for their peers.

Some of the resources can include: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Photovoltaics#Solar_cells http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fuel_cell

Possible Questions:
  • How does photovoltaic cell work?
  • What is the photovoltaic cell used for?
  • How does the fuel cell work?
  • What are the applications of the cells?
