Potato Powered Digital Clock Science Kit


What to do with a potato

You have recently brought in the potato crop, you have eaten hash browns, mashed potatoes, and French fries until you cannot eat anymore.  What else can you do with those bushel baskets full of spuds?  “Use them to power a digital clock” – Sounds crazy, but it really works, and it’s a great little science project for the kids.

Potato powered digital clock

It’s true you can power a digital clock using nothing more than a couple of potatoes as an energy source. It’s a lesson in green energy production, using ordinary garden vegetables. The potato contains Phosphoric acid that when combined with the correct metals, produces a chemical reaction which gives us a very small electric current, but enough to power our digital clock.

An affordable project or gift

This is a perfect little gift, or science project to keep your budding little scientist busy for at least several hours, and it’s very affordable. Order your potato powered clock kit today, and it can ship tomorrow.  – “Potatoes not included”
