Assembling the Paper Microbial Fuel Cell: Step #3

In this video, we demonstrate the final step in the assembly of our paper battery: injecting bacteria! We used laboratory cultured bacteria to kick start our fuel cell, but you can inject mud or sludge from a river (homes to huge microbial populations) at home.

We also give a detailed explanation of how the microbial fuel cell functions to make electricity! Stay tuned to learn the results of our experiment.
