Building a Better Battery
Did you know that you could build your own battery, using nothing more than some dimes, pennies, paper towels, and lemon juice? In this science project, you can use your homemade battery to make the needle on a compass move. You can also figure out which variables in building the battery will make the needle move the farthest.
