Fruit Battery


As part of an ongoing link between St Mary Queen of Martyrs Voluntary Catholic Academy, 60 Year 5 and Year 6 pupils came to experience a science lesson in a science lab. The pupils investigated the different combinations of fruit and metals to generate the most voltage in a “Fruit Battery”.


We achieved a whopping 9.6 Volts with 12 teams providing the cells. The primary pupils behaved excellently and the Year 11 prefects represented the school incredibly well.
