Salt Powered Robot

A Salt Powered Robot is a STEM kit that allows users to build a small robot powered by a saltwater fuel cell.

Salt Powered Robot

The Salt Powered Robot works by utilizing a chemical reaction between saltwater and metal plates to generate electrical energy. The robot includes a saltwater fuel cell module with metal plates and a small robotic platform.

To power the robot, the metal plates are immersed in a saltwater solution, which acts as an electrolyte. Through a process called electrolysis, the saltwater interacts with the metal plates, creating a flow of electrons. These electrons are then harnessed by the fuel cell module and used to power the robot's motor and movement.
