A 16 year old "used magnetic bacteria to produce an electrical current."

What science projects did you do as a child?

Pretty impressive stuff!

Science ? Moi ?......I don't think we did science at school; oh, hang on, I think someone invented the wheel.....................

The only science I can truly say I remember doing in the lab was at boarding school; someone told me that is you let Butane gas buble througgh milk, you would end up with something pretty potent.

I did'nt try it, but it is the only thing I remember!

I studied the effects of different kinds of light on plants; which grew better in what light. I think that was in 6th grade. I don't remember the results.

dang... i never even did mine... I was too lazy. i bet that kid's parents helped him and if not he very would be very likely to be the person to find a cure for cancer or start an apocolipse like in resedent evil. you never know. It depends on how he uses his mind.

Actually, You have reminded me of a project I took on when I was sixteen or so, in the Garden shed.

AND NO,it wasn't that sort of project! How dare you think such a thing; you should be ashamed......................

I was ineterested in Electronics (yes, we had Transistors), but they were very new, and we all thought it was much better to stick to valves (apart from anything they kept you a damn site warmer in the Garden shed!

I had an electronics magazine in which there was a diagram for a small low powered transmitter. I went out and bought all the part I needed, and set to making this thing work.

It was a bit hit and miss, because the 'tuning pots' (you know those things with a farrite rod in them that you can adjust, and they are surrounded by a coil); well, for one, the coil was handwound, by yours truly (I wa cutting corners to keep the cost withing the range of my pocket money).

Anyway, I digress. I had this weird looking construction (and not on a chassis either 9just sort of "Hanging in the air", when I decided to try it.

Of course, the main problem was "On which wavelength am I transmitting?".........so I had a radio beside me, and I manually scanned the airways while at the same time shouting "Hello, Hello, can you hear me!" down the mike. Not a peep out ofg the radio.

But I thought I could hear my father shouting. puzzled, I went outside, to find him leaning out of the lounge window asking why the television screen was going completely blank, and why could he hear me saying "Hello, Hello"

Of course, i dismantled the thing (I would have needed to pass an exam , and have a licence), but, during the next week, the road was suddenly full of telephone company vans, with little guys at the top of all the telephone poles........they were there for ages....................

ROLF! Michel, I've always known you must have had a checkered past! No one with your able, questing mind could possibly grow up entirely innocent of mischief! I can imagine the telephone vans, and the frustration of the techs! LMAO!

Well, my own science projects were making "special effects explosions." And since I was in AP chemistry, and TV production, I got to take the ingredients to school, mix them and store them in the chemistry room, and take them to the TV class to use for a stock-motion film I was making. Had a Ringwraith throw a ball that was about half the size of a paintball, and when it hit the ground, it blew up a few green army men.

I detect a theme here: guys like to blow things up. I'm sure that the kid with the magnetic bacteria only did this because he knows that somewhere down the line of research he will be able to make them explode.
