Terminal Damage
City:Peterborough, ON
School:James Strath P.S.
Abstract:Button-shaped, 3V lithium batteries (2032) were coated with 5 treatments and inserted into chicken wieners over a 10 minute trial to simulate human ingestion. Quantitative and qualitative observations of the wieners were taken each minute to record simulated damage to a human esophagus from ingestion. Paraffin wax coating on the batteries was determined to be the most effective coating to prevent damage to the wiener.
