  • I THINK you need paper clips, some wire, and a small light bulb (flashlight size). You need 2 pieces of wire. Put one end of each wire on a paper clip, then stick each paper clip into the fruit or vegetable(not touching each other). Have the other end each touch one side of the lightbulb. If it lights, there ya go.

  • Yes, the potato will, but I am not sure about the others. Also check out Science Buddies - they have awesome project ideas and an expert forum that allows you to ask any question and a scientist will answer you :)

  • I know that we've done that experiment with lemons and it worked. Never tried the potatoes.

  • I've seen the potato. I would search for the potato (and apparently lemon!) info to see what else is out there. Could make for an interesting science experiment to see which foods will and won't.
