Registration Solar Makers Workshop
Register for the Solar Makers' Workshop on the 23rd of November 11:30 - 18:00 in PV Lab (EWI) and on the 26th of November (around 17:00) in the Science Centre.

Please register as single or as a team of max 4 persons. If you register as a single participant or your team does not have 4 members, we will put you together with other free players.

Before registering, please take some time to read the rules' book below:

Can I participate?
You can participate if you are a student of dutch or international university.

How can I register?
To register as participants of the Solar Makers’ Competition you need to fill this Google form. You can register as a team of maximum 4 persons. If you register as a single-player or with a smaller group you will be put together by us in a four-elements team. Try, and we will do the same, to form a heterogeneous group of people from different backgrounds, skills, and interests.

How much does it cost?
We believe that education should be available to everybody, so participation is free of charge. A deposit of €10 is though necessary to ensure participation at the event. The amount needs to be deposited together with the registration via Google form. To be officially registered, a student needs to have submitted the filled form and paid the deposit of €10. A team is officially registered if each of the team members has paid the deposit of €10 and a single form with all the names of the members has been submitted as well. Details for payment are as follows:

What will be the output of the workshop?
Your team will be asked to create a prototype (with the provided instruments) a technically sustainable solution to one of the biggest global challenges in our time. What do we mean by a global challenge? A global challenge is a commune effort to solve a problem, that involves people across the globe, which will have a large-scale impact on humanity. A perfect example would be the transition from ICE to electric vehicles as a global challenge since it is addressed to a problem, the climate change, that involves the entire globe. For some other examples of global challenges refer to Appendix A. Be creative!

Are there any constraints?
Yes. Each team should use a minimum of 1 and a maximum of 20 PV cells in their product. To each team, 20 cells will be provided but it is up to you to decide how many are eventually necessary for your design. If 20 cells are not enough to realize your idea (if it is too big and needs to be scaled up), the team needs to provide calculations as a proof for a possible scale-up of the prototype.

Okay, but how do they get the stuff to build something?
Good question. We will provide you with some basic materials and instrumentation (see list below). If you already have an idea that needs different materials than the ones listed below you need to provide them yourself. Do not worry, we promise a full reimbursement of the expenses connected with materials for the projects with a maximum reimbursement of €100 for each team. So be sure to stay within the budget, sen as an email to be sure, and bring the bought object together with the bill at the workshop to have the reimbursement be assessed! If you cannot find something that you would really need to finalize your project, let us know as soon as possible: we will do our best to provide it to you on the day of the workshop.

List of the already available materials:

Cloth,
Gluegun,
Soldering iron,
Solder wire,
Breadboard/circuit board
Resistors,
20 PV cells,
Lego blocks,
Lego electric motor,
Lego wheels,
Different lamps (Halogen, LEDs, etc.),

...More surprises

When do I have to develop my idea?
The sooner the better! It will save you and your team time during the workshop and you will most probably see your project idea completed.

What is the timing and organisation of the workshop?
The workshop will take place in the PV Laboratory of EWI on Friday the 23rd of November between 11:30 and 18:00. Come on time, because we cannot exceed this time frame. Lunch will be provided. Mentors from the PVMD group of EWI faculty will be available for technical support. On Monday 26th afternoon/evening in the Science Centre, you will be invited to pitch the results of your work to the other teams. At the end of the event dinner and drinks will be offered for all the participants.
