GOOD Energy Meetup Idea: Build a Battery with Pocket Change

by Ben Jervey

February 5, 2011

Hunkin has some other great science experiments collected on his site, which are well worth checking out.

We'll be building batteries at the New York City meetup, and would love to hear of others doing the same.

Important note: Take pictures or video and send them to us after your meetup. We'll feature your event in a roundup of our big nationwide meetup.

And during the event, use the hashtag #goodenergy to tweet about your gathering.

We'll be posting more meetup ideas at GOOD's Environment hub all week, so check back soon.
