Ever wondered how solar technology works?

Then join us for this exciting workshop with Krystal Persaud, climate activist, startup veteran, and product design executive! Krystal will chat about the history of solar panels, the latest trends in the industry, and the science behind harvesting the sun’s magical energy. Krystal will walk us through a step-by-step tutorial of building a solar panel prototype that can charge a phone. The workshop will end with a sketching session of your own unique solar panel design — cat shaped solar panel, anyone?

Beginners are welcome — no prior electronics experience necessary!
