On Oct. 30, 19 students went to Argonne National Laboratory in order to build a better battery. 

The group was divided into teams of three. Each team, with the guidance of an Argonne facilitator, developed a prototype battery that will be used to power a toy car. Near the end of the visit, the teams came back together to share design approaches and come up with a cohesive design to see if their battery would power the car.
