The RSC's Electrochemistry Group is inviting students to enter a competition to design a battery and win up to £250.
The competition asks students 'Imagine you had a power cut at home - what could you use to produce some power?' The group are looking for the most imaginative solution that uses materials found in the home and garden.
A separate set of prizes is available to the best entry of a cartoon or illustration that demonstrates an electrochemical principle. Again, the judges are looking for creativity and entrants are asked to 'think different!'
More information can be found on the RSC Electrochemistry Group website. The deadline for entries is 15 December 2012.
