Many students doing a Veggie Power experiment use potatoes or lemons, but students can experiment with pumpkins, squash, and more!

Pumpkin Patch Science

With Halloween just around the corner, pumpkin-based science can be a fun way to get hands-on during science class or at home. With the Veggie Power Battery kit, students can explore electricity using fruits and vegetables. Which foods work best in a Veggie Power circuit and why? How will a pumpkin compare to a potato or a lemon? Put it to the test with this science experiment!

To conduct your own Pumpkin Power experiment, use the Potato Battery: How to Turn Produce into Veggie Power! directions at Science Buddies.
