Super Simple Sun Tracker

Super Simple Sun Tracker

This is instructions for how to make a simple sun tracker for solar cells. These are the only parts required: a motor, gears, a small solar cell, a large solar cell, aluminium foil, tape or glue and cardboard. A great deal of these parts were simply Legos and the rest are just household objects. This is a wonderful student/class project as it introduces students to not only concepts of solar power, but also, engineering.
