Girls' Day at the ipv

April 27, 2023

Under the motto "Converting sunlight into electricity: We build solar cells!", the ipv welcomed 18 girls to an exciting project day on April 27.

Girls generate power from sunlight

After welcoming the girls at the ipv, female researchers presented their work in the lab and explained how electricity can be generated from sunlight. The group then visited the solar plant on the roof of the university. After a short snack, the girls then built a fruit tea solar cell themselves.
