KS3 Science Teaching Pack: Shock Horror Science: Chemistry (PDF, 716 KB)

KS3 Science Teaching Pack: Shock Horror Science: Chemistry (PDF, 716 KB)

The horror story ‘Frankenstein’ was published in 1818. At the same time that the author Mary Shelley was writing her scary novel, scientists of the day were experimenting with electricity, and how to make batteries. One particularly creepy experiment involved passing electricity through dead bodies, making them quiver and twitch, and even sit upright. Some people thought the corpses were coming back to life. Mary Shelley knew all about these experiments, and used them to inspire her writing. In this lesson students make a simple electric cell from a potato and two pieces of metal and investigate how the distance between the electrodes affects the size of the electric current produced.
