The ICE-T Project

In this initiative of The Citizen Science Lab, Black/African-American High School Youth will learn the computational and experimental techniques required to examine the physiology, biochemistry, and voltage potential of microbial fuel cells (MFC), a living battery made powered by bacteria. Once participants learn the basics they will then build and create their own device powered by these living batteries.

Skills Learned:

  • Technical Design and Troubleshooting
  • Creating Agar and Microbial Growth Media
  • Electrical Measurement and Analysis
  • Soldering
  • Laboratory Sanitization
  • Culturing Microbes
  • Tool Usage
