We’ve seen fruit and vegetable batteries before and wondered how to make a lemon battery! We got a chance to find out with this fun experiment given to us by StemBox, and sponsored by Green Works.
How To Make a Lemon Battery
We added some fruit to the StemBox, and had everything we needed, including:
4 Lemons (not included in the StemBox)
Included in the StemBox as fun extras not necessary for the experiment were two pins, Green Works Wipes – great for the cleanup! -, mini fruit-powered clock, STEM Sticker.
We followed the instructions provided, adding a copper wire and a zinc nail to each lemon. We then used alligator clips to connect the lemons – copper wire to zinc nail. Then comes the really fun part: use an alligator clip connected to a copper wire and one connected to a zinc nail to clip onto the LED light — turn off the lights in the room and watch it light up!
