Electricity Science Fair Project

Human Body Battery

Human Body Battery | Science Fair Projects | STEM Projects
Have you ever wondered how you can use your body to create electricity? With this project, you can learn how to make a battery using your own body!


The hypothesis is that a human body can be used to create an electric current.

Method & Materials

You will need to mount two metal plates to two separate pieces of wood, connect them to a DC microammeter, and then place one hand on each plate.
You will need a copper plate, an aluminum plate, a micro ammeter, alligator clips, and lead wire.


The experiment showed that when the hands were placed on the metal plates, an electric current was generated on the meter. When the hands were wet, the resistance decreased and the current increased. This observation stands out because it shows how the human body can be used to create electricity.

Why do this project?

This science project is interesting and unique because it shows how the human body can be used to create electricity.

Also Consider

Experiment variations to consider include using different types of metals for the plates and using different liquids to wet the hands.
