Halstead: Quick thinking student makes potato powered clock in 20 seconds
2:50pm Sunday 27th October 2013 in News
A quick thinking student built a potato powered clocked in just 20 seconds.
Will Hook, 17, was the first Colchester Institute pupil to assemble the nine piece clock at the college’s Infofest.
He used copper wire, galvanized nails and jumper wires to connect two potatoes to the terminals of a digital clock.
The former Ramsey College pupil was given a £25 iTunes voucher for winning the competition, which aimed to build awareness of the College’s commitment to harnessing sustainable energy and inform students about alternative natural energy sources.
