Agrivoltaics for Educators

The Colorado Agrivoltaic Learning Center is a resource for Colorado educators to learn more about agrivoltaics and to teach their students about clean energy, local food, and responsible land use. We help students to imagine a sustainable future and the many career opportunities agrivoltaics presents.

Field Trip Activities

CALC is committed to providing agrivoltaic lessons during visits to Jack's Solar Garden while still covering required and important content in a hands-on approach. To that end, we have designed lessons that are aligned to Colorado Science Academic Standards and Next Generation Science Standards. Below is a list of activities that can be part of a field trip:

  1. Microclimate Lesson (Design an investigation under the solar panels) optimal for high school students

  2. Tinkering Activity (Create a circuit to power a fan/rover/ light) optimal for middle school students 

  3. Solar Powered Art (Create a circuit to power a spiral artwork 
  4. Jack's Solar Garden Tour Outline 

 

The hands-on lessons require supplies, we have tested and found certain materials to be the most durable and useful. See our recommendations below.
