Microbe Power! Workshop


The workshop was divided in 2 days. The first day consisted of a presentation of my works and the introduction of the principle of a microbial fuel cell (MFC for short). The goal of the workshop was to get hands-on with the principles of a MFC and see it working.

After the introductory presentations were held by me and the assisting scientists, the MFC’s were introduced to the participants. Each participant got their own set of parts for a MFC, which they assembled during the rest of the first day.

On the second day we would measure the voltage provided by the MFC’s to compare with the voltage on the first day. After measuring, all MFC’s were connected together and turned on a small motor and LED.
