Product Description

Project Difficulty: Intermediate
Project Length: Several Days
Project Instructions: "Potato Batteries: How to Turn Produce into Veggie Power"

Did you know that you can get electricity out of a potato? This kit contains all the materials you need to build and test a simple battery using potatoes—or other produce of your choice. We provide easy to follow online instructions to get your battery set up so you can:

  • Build a battery that can power an LED or a buzzer.
  • Get hands on experience with the basics of electricity and circuits including voltage, current, resistance, and more.
  • Learn how to use a multimeter (included with this kit) to measure how much power your battery can produce.

This kit includes quality, reusable electronic components so you can conduct valid scientific experiments. We will show you how to set up a basic potato battery, but you can also create your own experiments. Does a lemon make as much power as a potato? Does the freshness of the produce matter? What else can you power with produce? The possibilities are endless.
