Paper Battery

Paper+Battery

By: Ian Smythe

A group of scientists at the State University of New York created a paper battery. The battery runs off of bacteria. It works by putting freeze-dried bacteria onto paper with layers of metal, and transferring electrons through the cell, creating electricity when the electrons pass through the cell membrane.

This is related to engineering because they have to engineer the battery and they need to bio-engineer so the battery can use bacteria.
