1. Outreach activity: Estimating Solar Energy Requirements to Meet US Energy Needs


Superposition of hypothetical solar power plants having areas the size of Alaska, Texas, Virginia, and Connecticut on a map of the contiguous United States. This hands-on outreach activity allows students to determine how large of an area must be covered with solar panels to meet the U.S. primary energy needs.

Note to educators:  Feel free to use and modify the presentation as a part of your own educational activities.  We welcome any feedback that you may have on what worked or did not work well.
