Make Electricity from Fruits
Fruit Battery
(Sponsored Project Guide)
Making electricity from chemicals is based on the same scientific principles on which all modern batteries work. You insert copper and zinc electrodes in a chemical solution (electrolyte) and produce some electricity from the chemical reaction between your electrodes and electrolyte. 

In a fruit battery, the electrolyte will be a natural fruit, not a synthetically made chemical. Fruits are safe to handle so all students can try this project safely.

Make Electricity From Fruit
Material and instructions:
This project is one of the most famous electricity/ Chemistry projects that can be performed successfully by most students in the age range of 10 to 16. It helps students to learn about producing electrical energy using chemical energy. Since the same method is used to get energy from many fruits and chemicals, this project can have many other names as well. Following are some of the other names or titles for this project:
  1. Fruit power or fruit battery
  2. Convert Chemical energy to electrical energy
  3. Which fruit produces the most electrical energy?

Materials are easily available as a kit; however, with the same price or a little more and spending some time, you can find the materials individually as well.
