    This document is a lesson plan for a short module covering: (1) What is a solar energy (2) Energy and wavelength of light (3) The concept of solar cells and how they work (4) The concept of photovoltaics. The module is readily adapted for students in grades 1-12. It was originally drafted for presentation to children aged 7-13 at the Rocky Mountain Camp for Dyslexic Children. The planned activities are therefore hands-on and do not rely on reading or writing skills.
