Solarcentury solar energy resources

Providing sustainable solutions for the future

Solarcentury, together with SolarAid and in association with the University of York, is proud to have developed these fantastic science resources for 14-16 year olds which will help answer questions such as these, teaching pupils about the impacts and uses of solar photovoltaics (PV) in Africa and the UK. These new resources have been designed to meet requirements of the new Science Curriculum launched September 2015 and will be in effect for 5 years.

The resources have been designed to provide teaching staff with appealing and easy to use, interactive lesson plans and tasks to engage your students and demonstrate the role solar can play in meeting the world's energy requirements.

Analysis, evaluation and maths skills

The resources support the increased mathematical demand of the new CGSE specifications by providing opportunity for estimations and calculations of energy usage. They also provide information and data which can be adapted for students to analyse and evaluate.

The resources comprise outline lesson plans for three lessons and accompanying PowerPoint presentations. They can be downloaded from the Solarcentury website after registering.
