Encourage your students or children to become scientists as they discover how to power this digital clock using simple potatoes found in the kitchen. The combination of metal strips included and ordinary potatoes make a simple battery that creates enough electricity to operate a small clock. This kit features a detailed instruction manual, guiding the young scientist to clearly understand how this works.
Kit allows you to build your own digital clock powered by a potato (other kinds of fruits/vegetables can be used as well)
Includes detailed instruction manual guiding the user through the building process and giving fun facts and info

These worked just long enough to see the science behind it, but the clock just didn't keep the time efficiently. This clock is considerably better than the one that comes with the lemon clock, but still not time-telling.

It really works. Tried with lemons and apples worked both times. Took it to school made experiment there as well.
Fantastic science project!

Our son absolutely loved building the clock for his 3rd-grade science project. Directions were pretty clear and clock worked like it should have. Definitely recommend this!
