Kidz Labs Make Your Own Lemon Clock
Curious Minds Did You Know?
Historically in many regions lemons used to be very rare, so rare that royals would offer lemons to each other as gifts!
The Lemon Clock kit is an excellent way to ignite a love for science.
Discover the science of batteries by simply adding your own lemon to turn your fruit into a power source! Use electrolysis to learn about batteries and how they work with this hands-on, easy to use kit. Simply add a lemon and watch the circuit come to life powering your very own clock!
It works as when the copper and zinc electrodes are inserted into the electrolyte – a solution that conducts electricity, in this case, the lemon – the zinc electrode undergoes an oxidation reaction and the copper electrode undergoes a reduction reaction. The zinc electrode releases electrons that move through the wires to the clock and the copper electrode. This current activates the display on the clock!
A brilliant gift set for a young, excited and inquisitive mind. Ideal to foster curiosity and encourage scientific learning on rainy days and a fantastic school holiday activity.
Contains 2x copper and 2x zinc electrodes, clock, wires and instructions.
The lemon can be replaced with a potato, grapefruit or even soft drinks.
