The MudWatt is a fun, educational science kit which uses the natural microorganisms found within ordinary dirt to generate electricity! In the span of a few days, the unit's LED light will start to blink, powered solely by the energy created by bacteria found in your dirt. In about a week, you will be able to use the built-up energy from the bacteria to power a digital clock and thermometer, all without the assistance of batteries! You can experiment with different types of dirt (dry, wet, from a garden, taken from the forest, or a park) in order to ascertain which yield the most power, utilizing open-ended scientific investigation. You can also use the included Mudwatt app to track the growth of your bacteria population - as it grows, you will unlock chapters in the fun comic found inside the app. There are also a bevy of lesson plans and educational resources, making this kit totally compatible with classroom activities and science fairs!
This particular version of the Mudwatt kit contains the everything you need (except the soil) to get started, including an anode, a cathode, one Mudwatt blinker board, a hacker pack (the digital clock/thermometer), an instructional booklet, a pair of black nitrile gloves, the Mudwatt vessel, and access to the app! All you need to provide is the soil you place in the vessel!
Enjoy discovering the world of bacteria and energy with one of the most creative, interdisciplinary STEM instructional toys for the modern world, integrating microbiology, chemistry, and electrical engineering all in one kit! Makes a great gift.
