April 5, 2014 ARTLab: Solar Panel Jamboree!

We all know that solar panels use the sun to create energy, but have you ever considered how? Have you ever considered how solar energy can create art? Join ARTLab on April 5th as we become solar panel scientists for the day! Participants will work with a solar panel provided by DC to Power to experiment with angles and location as they link the solar energy to small electronics. 

Visitors will also make their own prints created from the sun using stenciling and UV light to produce photographic images with the assistance of educators Indigo Raffel and Derek Reese. This installment of ARTLab is a perfect example of how art and science can come together to create something new! We hope to see you on the first Saturday of April, ready to learn and make from green energy!

ARTLab is free with museum admission and is open to all ages.
