Could living organisms generate an electrical current? Students set up a simple cell and, using the organism yeast as well as a special dye capable of entering yeast cells and collecting electrons, determine if the harvested electrons are capable of producing current in the cell and if so, how much current. This fun activity also serves as a great tool to stimulate discussion with regard to alternate energy sources. Kit contains enough materials for 15 groups.
