How do you store solar energy for use when it is not light out? In the "The Speed of Light: Explore Solar Energy with a Supercapacitor Car Motor!" electronics #science project, students investigate how a capacitor works and how the time used to charge a solar-powered supercapacitor affects how long a car is powered.
