Earth battery is an innovative, interactive and eco-friendly method of producing energy using soil and metals instead of polluting materials. This energy production is applicable to education by learning about electrical systems in a simpler way or by distributing electricity to people with limited access to it.

Audience: Chief technology officers/superintendents/school board members, Coaches, Technology coordinators/facilitators
Skill level: Beginner
Attendee devices: Devices not needed
Topic: Assistive & adaptive technologies
Subject area: Computer science, Science
ISTE Standards: For Education Leaders:
Systems Designer
  • Ensure that resources for supporting the effective use of technology for learning are sufficient and scalable to meet future demand.
For Educators:
  • Create learning opportunities that challenge students to use a design process and computational thinking to innovate and solve problems.
For Students:
Innovative Designer
  • Students develop, test and refine prototypes as part of a cyclical design process.
Additional detail: Student presentation

Proposal summary

Purpose & objective

All the people who actively participate in the activities we have planned can have a better understanding of electricity and its components since basically Earth Battery is a battery that can be disassembled, so they can understand concepts of electricity and clarify and increase the information they have regarding this. Besides, it would not only be to disassemble an Earth Battery but it would also be to interact with technology so that they can see how we relate technology to improve our model.


First we would give a short introduction to the Earth Battery applications regarding education issues (10 minutes)
We would give a small workshop so they can see what it does, like charge their cell phone with an Earth Battery pot model (15 minutes)
Then we would show how it works by giving the audience the opportunity to assemble and disassemble an Earth Battery system (15 minutes)
Give them the opportunity to learn about electricity with Arduino and computers while using the Earth Battery system they put together (25 minutes)
Conclusion highlighting important points of its possible uses and thanks (5 minutes)
