In this video segment adapted from ZOOM, cast members become electron conductors to reconnect a broken electric circuit. By joining hands, the cast members complete, or close, a circuit that had been broken when the lemon powering a digital clock was sliced in half. Power is restored as soon as electrons are again allowed to flow uninterrupted from the lemon battery to the clock.
