Sehome High School InvenTeam
Surveyor of Solar Energy Potential
The InvenTeam's device surveys a location for its solar energy potential by determining solar obstructions–including trees, houses, mountains, etc. Advanced Circuits sponsored the circuit board production of the surveyor, and Garmin – a GPS designer/manufacturer – provided a GPS at reduced cost. The InvenTeam plans to develop multiple surveyors that can communicate wirelessly, and will determine the best solar-energy location, rather than assessing the solar energy potential of a single location.
