I am doing a science Experiment at school and am wondering if you can electroplate nickel on copper? (nickel and penny?) I am in fifth grade.

It is routinely done in factories, Drew, but I don't think you can do it for school because it probably requires strong acids that are too dangerous. Instead, plate a quarter with copper or a penny with zinc per our FAQs.
