Favorite school science project: "When I had 12 years old, I remember to brighten a dark area of my home, I can use a potato and light bulb with a few other elements to create light. I placed two pennies, two zinc-plated nails into the potato and connect to three pieces of copper wire and a very small light bulb. Now I practice this experiment with my child to power a clock making the potato act as a battery."
