Based on a NOVA Online lesson, Teachers' Domain presents this interactive activity that provides reading material and animations to help students learn the basics of photovoltaic cells, including how a solar cell converts solar energy into electricity and the components of the unit (silicon layers, metal backing, antireflective coating, and metal conductor strips). On the site, visitors will also find a supplemental background essay, discussion questions, and standards alignment from Teachers' Domain.
