Fun science lesson, anyone? It’s about electricity, sunlight, and mechanics. Our friends at IBEW-NECA Technical Institute are giving you a unique opportunity. You’ll build electrical voltages from photovoltaic modules, learn how energy storage works, and be a part of the mechanical assembly of an entire photovoltaic system. 

Let’s break this down. Photovoltaics is known as the conversion of light into electricity using semi-conducting materials. Whenever you see solar panels on the roofs of homes, photovoltaic modules are allowing electricity to fuel because of the sunlight hitting those solar panels. Sign up now!  

*For this program students will travel in The Bridge Bus to an offsite location.  They will be going to IBEW-NECA Technical Institute, located at 6201 W. 115th Street in Alsip. Must have ‘Permission to Transport’ indicated on Student Membership Application (check your Student Portal to make sure).
