17 April. My pleasure to help provide the solar energy demonstration.

Dr Iskander M. Ibrahim demonstrates the power of sunlight with the famous solar-powered train set.  The demonstration was devised as part of my inaugural lecture, thinking outside the green box.  On this sunny April day in Chatham the train could be driven by sunlight rather than artificial light.  The unshaded silicon photovoltaic panel produced quite enough power to derail the train.
