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 a simple battery using potatoes – or other produce of your choice. You will learn some of the basics of electricity and circuits: What is voltage? What is current? What is resistance? How much power can you get out of a vegetable battery?

Follow the instructions for the Science Buddies' Potato Batteries: How to Turn Produce into Veggie Power! project to get a basic understanding of how to set up your battery. But don’t stop there; continue exploring to figure out things like: Does a lemon make as much power as a potato? Does the freshness of the produce matter? What else can you power with produce?
