Potato Energy

How can a potato provide energy to a lightbulb? Fourth Class students in Mrs. Pearce’s science class are studying light and matter. Today, they worked with copper and zinc bars, alligator clips and potatoes to test circuits to power an LED light!

They tried various configurations and made multiple observations, recording findings in their notebooks. They ultimately learned that using several potatoes is key! It was a great lesson — nice work, super scientists!
