Lemon Batteries and Solar Cells by Dr. Ursula Schwuttke, IHMC

January 9, 2016

The topic for Science Saturday in January 2016 was “Lemon Batteries and Solar Cells”, presented by Dr. Ursula Schwuttke, Director of Educational Outreach, IHMC. Students learned how to use a volt meter to measure the voltage of a battery. They then learned how to make a battery out of lemons (and other fruits) and how to use their lemon batteries to power a digital clock. The final activity was about solar cells. This Science Saturday season is sponsored by Lockheed Martin and by Ron and Phyllis Ewers.
