Earth Week: Natural Dye-Sensitized Solar Cells Skills Lab
Friday, April 21, 2017 at 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm
University Center, 618 63 Fifth Avenue, New York, NY
Have you ever wondered how a solar cell works? What if you heard that you could generate energy from the sun with the help of crushed berries? Come build solar cells with us!
Natural Dye-Sensitized Solar Cells (NDSC) are an alternative solar technology. NDSC harvests sunlight with pigments taken from flora, and are cheap and easily made–so easy that we will teach you how to build them in an afternoon.
We will then network the cells, and have a discussion about the solar energy harvested by our cells, and the energy that went into sourcing the materials and making the cells. Finally, we will discuss future design applications to take the energy transition into your own hands.
