Project: Design a Galvanic Cell

Students use a voltage sensor and a variety of supplies to design a galvanic cell that can light LED bulbs in series or in parallel.

Supports NGSS Performance Expectations 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 -and- HS-ETS1-3: Evaluate a solution to a complex real-world problem based on prioritized criteria and trade-offs that account for a range of constraints, including cost, safety, reliability, and aesthetics, as well as possible social, cultural, and environmental impacts.
