Microbial Fuel Cells

How might we embed the natural world in the way we live? Imagine a world where you could power electronic devices using electricity created by yeast and sugar!

Find out how in this experiment where you find out what a microbial fuel cell is and how it work. Then create your own fuel cell using jelly and yeast and measure the voltage over time.

This experiment has been produced as part of the Festivals of Chemistry 2023 within Stage 3: Chemistry for Good Challenge. Find out more here: https://festivalsofchemistry.org/
