Power from your garden!
You may know potatoes as a good source of potassium, but did you know they can be used to power an alarm clock? This kit contains a digital clock and the instructions and everything you need (except the spuds) to run it. The two Potato Clock allows you to generate enough electricity to run a digital clock using potatoes! Just push the zinc and copper electrodes into the potatoes causing an oxidation/reduction reaction that is converted to low voltage.
- Be a scientist as you discover how to power the digital clock with potatoes
- A unique experimental kit that inspires young scientists
- Turn the kids onto the notion of leaving a smaller carbon footprint
- Try all types of fruit and vegetables
