The evening of the 25th January is a DIYbio fuel cell special, where we'll be building and comparing an array of microbe-powered batteries with the help of MMU's Dr. Trish Linton who also ran the fuel cell session at the DIYbio Summit back in October. Along the way we'll be trying to answer some crucial microbe-y questions:
- How do microbial fuel cells actually work?
- Which part of the Northern Quarter has the hardest working soil bacteria?
- Who would win in a tug of war? Brewers' yeast or the instant stuff out of a packet?
- Will microbes fuel the future? When will my car have a composter rather than a fuel tank?
