Our New Solar Battery

In a way, the solar battery charger made by the Introduction to Electronics course this spring embodies our mission, and what Dublin is all about. It was made from scratch, and required students to solve a problem, to collaborate, and to learn independently. The teacher had never made one before and was learning with the students. It was practical and served a need on campus, being put to use to power the scoreboards on the sports fields. It was made to perform outdoors. It was fun, and the students were proud of their work, though it was not heralded by much fanfare. Through the process, students developed a sense of stewardship and agency in meeting the energy needs of the school while learning ideas and skills they can use in other areas as well. This project, like many other wonderful curricular challenges and classes this spring, brought our mission to life.
