Build a Lemon Battery
When life hands you lemons instead of making lemonade lets generate power.
The fundamentals of a chemical battery can be illustrated by using a fresh lemon to build a battery. While a lemon battery will not be able to run a motor, it can light a small light bulb or LED. Batteries consist of electrodes immersed in an acidic solution, or electrolyte; the electrodes are two different metals, often copper and zinc.
