- Build a clock powered by slime
- It's time... time for slime
- And you learn stuff, too!
In the olden days, batteries weren't made the same way as they are now. For example, the battery that powered the first eco-friendly car was called a horse. Also, if you leave a potato long enough, it becomes slime (trust us - it's nasty, and it smells real bad). Combine all these words in a blender and you get horse potatoes (we're leaving that one alone) and slime batteries. It's the latter which you'll use to power this Slime Time clock!
With Slime Time, you'll put together a simple digital clock. But instead of installing batteries, you'll hook the electrodes up to two test tubes filled with electro-goop. This goop produces enough electricity to power the clock, all the while teaching you about electrochemical reactions, electrodes, and batteries (in general). Slime Time is great for any office desk, or for those kids wanting to do a really oozy science fair project. Oh, slime... is there nothing you can't do?
