I had to come up with a science fair project so I decided to play with food and find the stuff that you can generate electricity with, known as electrolytes. While playing with your food you will find out if orange juice has more electrolytes than a sports drink. This is a great project for older kids science projects. It is also is very informative for sports considering that electrolytes are very important to staying heathy and active.
Step 1: Materials
You will need:
a sport drink of you choice (preferably Gatorade)
Bare copper wire, 24 gauge
