kinetic: relating to or resulting from motion.
Photovoltaic uses solar energy to power a kinetic chandelier, which is composed of 50 plastic tubes. Many of the tubes have motors and bead chains attached which will spin when light hits the solar panels. Visitors can play with a foosball style table which holds solar panels, and turn them to face the light inside or outside.
Solar panels absorb rays from the sun and turn their energy into electricity. Because the Inventorium does not always get enough natural light at this time of the year, we’ve put a sun inside of the table so you can still make the chandelier work!
