The resource includes an experiment building a coin-based battery made from natural resources and how it could be modified and upscaled to drive renewable power needs for a carbon-free world. This educational tool is simple, illustrative, and perfect for the classroom.
Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS)
ETS1: Engineering Design
MS-ETS1-2 Evaluate competing design solutions using a systematic process to determine how well they meet the criteria and constraints of the problem.
3-5-ETS1-1 Define a simple design problem reflecting a need or a want that includes specified criteria for success and constraints on materials, time, or cost.
4-PS3-2 Make observations to provide evidence that energy can be transferred from place to place by sound, light, heat, and electric currents.
HS-PS3-3 Design, build, and refine a device that works within given constraints to convert one form of energy into another form of energy.
