It's that time of year again...Science Fair Season. I appearantly didn't learn my lesson last year and have put it off till the last minute again. This year, we are testing the energy levels in fruits and vegetables. The idea is that you put a penny and a galvanized nail in a potato, hook up the wires that are connected to a lightbulb, and the lightbulb lights up. After several hours of placing and replacing pennies, nails, and wires, we learned that we weren't getting enough power for our lightbulb, and that we needed smaller lightbulbs that would actually light. So tonight, we will try, try again, but this is what our poor potato looked like last night.
