The department participated again in the Anaheim Duck’s annual S.C.O.R.E event at the Honda Center.
They set up copper and steel plates to demonstrate how the chemical energy of the body converts into electrical energy. When a person places their hands on a copper-steel pair of metal plates, the effect works like a battery and produces almost half the voltage of a AA battery.
Connecting 20-30 kids in series with the help of copper and steel rods boosts the voltage of this human-chain battery. They were able to produce about 24 Volts equivalent to 16 AA batteries.
