Automatic Sun Tracking System for Solar Panel

Short Description

Students develop a sun tracking system designed to enhance the efficiency of solar panels. This innovation holds the potential to provide a viable solution for improving the economic and efficient utilisation of solar panels in residential settings.

Detail Description

1. Purposes of the project:

The primary objective of this initiative is to empower students in recognizing their competencies while nurturing their skills and attitudes through engaging in scientific projects. Throughout the project, students will receive guidance and mentorship from experts affiliated with the University of Technology in Ho Chi Minh City, as well as CREST Mentors who will assist them in their research endeavors. To ensure a strong educational foundation, we have identified core knowledge and skills rooted in the NGSS standards from the United States and the CREST standards from the United Kingdom.

Furthermore, this project is geared towards the development of a sun tracking system designed to enhance the efficiency of solar panels. This innovation holds the potential to provide a viable solution for improving the economic and efficient utilisation of solar panels in residential settings. Additionally, students participating in this project will have the unique opportunity to gain practical experience in working with electrical devices, circuits, and coding, akin to the skills of professional engineers in the field.

2. Participants:​

In the project, there are:

  • STEM ambassador

    The STEM ambassador; trained experts from the University, who help students to gain expertise in electronic, embedding code, making flowchart, assembling electrical devices and circuit.

  • The CREST Mentor (from STEMax)

    Who will help students understand and meet the criteria for BSA for Silver levels and support STEM ambassadors work well with the students.

  • Students

    The number of students is 2 students in total. They are all from the Saigon South International School in Ho Chi Minh city.

3. Location and timeline:​

3.1. Location:

The project runs in various locations within Ho Chi Minh city. These include: 

  • The Laboratory of Electronic and Electricity Ho Chi Minh City University of Technology – National University. In the laboratory, students will conduct experiments on the Solar panel with the Sun tracking system with the modern equipment and the guidance from Experts. 
  • Makerlab Innovation Space, students have opportunities working with electrical devices and circuses. 
  • STEMax facilities such as rooms for students to work in groups. 
  • Students will also work at home and meet virtually after the laboratory time and group time.

3.2. Timeline:

The whole project lasts for 3 months from the end of September 2023 to December 2023.
