Thumbs down solar panel science fair grade 8

Hi,

I am stressing about my science fair project I picked. I hope it will be work. I wanted (and turned in to my teacher) to test which angle would be most effective of light for most output of energy from a solar panel. I have a small solar panel approx. 6 in x 4 inches. Do you think this will be big enough? What would be some good sources for the research end of this project? I thought I could measure the output of energy with a volt meter. What do you think of that idea? The independent variable would be the angles, the dependent variable would be the output and the controls would be.............using the same equipment and meter and distance.

What are your thoughts on these ideas?

Thanks!! Can't wait to hear from you!!:
