High school chemistry projects are a great way to demonstrate the principles you have learned in chemistry class. The following projects give you an opportunity to show what you've learned, solve chemistry problems and create a cool project that will impress your high school chemistry class.
Using a Vegetable as a Battery
Hypothesis: The juice in a potato contains chemicals that can create electricity.
Variations: Try other fruits and vegetables. Connect several potatoes to run a light-emitting diode.
Soil as an Electrical System
Hypothesis: Soil can be used as an electrical system.
