Sun-drinkers Solar Energy Workshop with Peter Flemming
Come celebrate the Summer Solstice with artist Peter Flemming in a Sun-drinkers Solar Energy Workshop!
In this workshop you will create a simple, small sun-drinker from electronic components that can twitch, twitter or twinkle. Idly basking in sunlight, these entities slowly absorb electrical energy from a solar cell. When sufficiently sun- drunk, they burst into activity, releasing their accumulated power until depleted. Spent, the creatures then relax into resting lazy mode, starting their cycle afresh.
- learn how capacitors work
- explore fundamentals of solar energy
- learn how to solder a circuit board
- come away with a permanently assembled circuit
- look at examples of artworks using this technique
