Really Cool Experiments!

This project was fun and amazing for our whole family. Neither my children or myself were convinced that a potato could produce electrical power, but we were very excited to try. We used this electric kit to go along with our home school studies on how electricity works. I was very pleased to see that the instructions stated that we could use this kit with other food items besides potatoes. This was great for our first try with it, because I was out of potatoes. Luckily, the instructions said we could use citrus fruits, so we tried this experiment on a lemon for our first attempt at capturing electricity. The kit itself was minimal with the number of objects we needed to complete this experiment. Everything was explained well. The most difficult part my kids had, was looping the wires into the tiny holes of the electrodes. In the “How It Works” section of the direction's pamphlet, there is a small, but concise paragraph explaining the background science of this experiment. I do wish that this was written on a separate she of paper that would catch the key of my children. Unfortunately, they did not catch this bit of information on their own, I found it and read it out loud to them. We were able to have a lot of fun with this kit as a family.

POTATO CLOCK

I was very excited about getting the Science Potato Clock Kit. I thought, what a great way to spend quality time with my grandson. It did not fail my expectations. We had a great time, reading the easy to understand instructions and putting it together. The excitement that we felt when the clock worked, was phenomenal! We used apples instead of potatoes and it still worked perfectly. I absolutely LOVED the fact that, not only was it quality time with my grandson, we both learned how natural resources can be used to create energy! The proud look on my grandsons face when we connected the clock, and it worked, was truly amazing! He couldn't wait to tell everyone what we did.

The only negative thing that I can say about the Green Science Potato Clock is that I wish the experience and excitement could have lasted longer. Thank you for creating a product that brought such happiness to us.

I will definitely recommend it to friends and family.

Awesome stem activity

This potato clicking an excellent gift for those kids that are into Stem activities. It is recommended for ages 8 and up. My 8 year old loves it. Not only can you use a potato but it can show you how a lemon, cola, apples and even a tomato can also conduct electricity. It comes with 2 small cups, for the use of cola if you plan to use that for the experiment, it also comes with the digital clock, wires, connecting wire and zinc strips. I just think it is so cool how we can teach our kids and have them having fun at the same time. Since mine is a science geek it makes it all the more enjoyable. It does come with directions that start of with a set of safety messages that include to make sure you have adult supervision and small parts that could cause choking as well as metal parts that could be sharp. The directions also provide you with a bunch of trouble shooting tips incase you are having issues with the potato clock which is nice so you can make sure that what you're doing is going to result in a good experiment.

Easy

My 8 year old says “that was really easy! All you have to do is read the directions and do it”.

I had asked him to patiently wait until after i was done cooking so I could help and he had it done before I had the veggies chopped. Now he is an excellent reader straight A bright student but i think most kiddos would find this easy. You can use other things besides potatoes as well. This worked as described and it's set up in his room for fun. Great experiment and good teaching aid.
