Generating electricity from mud? It's a dirty little secret, but it's true! Check out this promising form of alternative energy with our Microbial Fuel Cell kit. Pack the kit's vessel with mud, align the anodes and cathodes as directed in our project instructions, and sit back and wait for the bacteria in the mud to make electricity! Our kit comes with a hacker board that sits on top of the microbial fuel cell allowing you to power LED lights or a combined clock/thermometer (included in the kit) from the energy you generate. A digital multimeter is also included so you can make exact measurements to determine the amount of power you are generating daily. This kit is a fun and easy introduction to a cutting-edge topic in alternative energy!
