Description

Powered by Muck: A Microbial Fuel Cell Workshop | October 7th 3-5 pm
Instructor:
Jen Liu (Cornell University)

Learn to make a battery using bacteria! Microbial fuel cells (MFCs) are devices that convert organic matter into electrical energy using bacteria. In this hands-on workshop, we will learn about how these fuel cells work and build MFCs using locally harvested mud. We will also consider how these devices can help us rethink how we design electronic devices when working with living and organic matter.
