Abstract

Both the development of a hands-on laboratory activity to enhance learning and an outline for evaluating student performance are described in this article. The laboratory activities involve establishing an experimental module, which uses a digital multi-meter to measure: thin-film-solar cell output voltage, electrolysis of water, hydrogen-fuel cell load voltage, and hydrogen-fuel cell load current. These activities are introduced to Taiwanese junior high school students via this study, thus enabling them to participate in thin-film-solar-hydrogen-fuel cell technology. The hands-on activities are effective in introducing students to the concept of renewable energy through activity evaluation.
