Potato Battery Exhibit at the USS Intrepid

Teaching about Anodes, Cathodes, and Redox Reactions

This past Sunday a group of other CUSD students & I were invited to lead some workshops for young students at the USS Intrepid Museum in New York City. We held two demos, working with kids to build molecules out of gumdrops, and making potato batteries to turn on LEDs. The whole day was a ton of fun, and I really enjoyed teaching the several hundred kids who filtered through about electron flow, redox reactions, and series/parallel circuits. It’s great to see so many young kids excited about engineering and science! Check out some pictures from both our workshops, and around the Intrepid Museum, here.
