INTRODUCTION [METHOD]

Batteries works because of the energy released by a chemical reaction which is then changed into electrical energy or 'current'. Electrical current is caused by the movement of electrons through a complete circuit and can be used to light a flashlight, sound a bell, turn a motor and many other useful applications.

In this science experiment we will learn more about batteries by making our own battery out of fruit to light a light bulb!
