The basic kit of the series article 1000 comprises material to manufacture an interconnection of 6 solar cells. Manufacturing can be performed by as few as one person to as many as twelve as the manufacturing steps can be divided into several phases.
A calculator is included to demonstrate the functioning of the manufactured solar cells. Please note that a clay oven or other heat source conducting 450° C must be used for the preparation of the photo electrodes. A multimeter is recommended to measure voltage, current and electrical resistance. Neither a heat source nor multimeter are included in this kit.In the full colour manual included the following issues are addressed:Overview of contentsPreparation and building of solar cellsSpreading the titaniumdioxide solutionMeasurement of the solar cellsApplication of the solar cells in combination with a calculator or a soundchipExperiments with different dyesRecycling of the solar cells for new experimentsArticle 1000 contains the following components:1 x 12 conductive glass electrodes (art. 002) 1 x Titanium dioxide solution (art. 004) to coat art. 002 1 x Tape (Scotch 3M)  1 x Microscope slide glass 1 x Pipette 1 x Wire gauze 1 x Pencil 1 x Hybiscus dye/pigment staining material (art. 013) 1 x Petridish 1 x Paper clips 1 x Electrolyte (art. 016) 1 x Set of 10 crocodile clip cables 1 x Safety goggles 1 x Screw driver set 1 x Pocket calculator
