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 everything you need to engage a class of 10 to 30 students in a journey of bacterial discovery!  That means you get the equivalent of 10 Core Kits, in order to run multiple tests simultaneously!  Up to 3 kids can work together on one kit.  Use dirt from a different source for each one, and develop a hypothesis concerning which dirt will produce the most power-generating bacteria, and see if the results match your assumptions!  The kit includes 10 Core Kits, containing all the necessary anodes and cathodes, 10 Mudwatt vessels, 3 Mudwatt digital clocks, 18 alligator clips for connecting the vessels, access to the app as well as the Mudwatt NGSS Teacher's Guide and other educational resources, and 3 Mudwatt Maxtrackers, which are multimeters that will give you highly accurate readouts of the maximum power and the health of your bacterial colonies.

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.
