In 2005, Voltree Power was the first to harvest metabolic energy from nonanimal organisms such as trees and plants. Uncovering the mystery of the science behind tree-power through research sponsored at MIT, Voltree Power has developed a bioenergy harvester that is now being used in practical, inexpensive, and pioneering sensing solutions focusing on agricultural, environmental and national resource preservation. Voltree currently provides this technology in the form of a science kit and supporting game app to help inspire next-generation scientists. CircuiTree was not just developed to help you understand the science behind tree power, but also to encourage hands-on engagement in the sciences by providing young, aspiring scientists with the tools to assemble a bioenergy circuit that can light an LED with tree power. Voltree would like you to take things a step further by encouraging participation in various dimensions of the scientific method like data collection and experimentation. With our app, you will be able to share your data with others and provide some thought-provoking ideas as to how you can enhance this power or just get creative with it. You can also compete in a global race to see who can light the most LED’s most quickly. Voltree challenges you to take tree power to the next level.
