E1874: Carbon-based Electronics: Going Organic! in Splash! Fall 2011 (Oct. 29 - 30, 2011)
In this class, we will look at a class of materials known as organic semiconductors. These are carbon-based materials that can conduct electricity and are used for transistors, LEDs and even solar cells. You will learn about what make these materials conductive, how the devices operate and compete in some logic games!

E1057: Solar Cells and Batteries from Fruits in Splash! Fall 2010 (Nov. 13 - 14, 2010)
In this class we will explore how solar cells and batteries work. We will construct different solar cells and batteries using ordinary fruits and compare their performances. Students will gain a basic understanding of the physics behind these devices and hands-on experiences making their own batteries!
