Then I would just try tons of lemons in series. Maybe try different fruits to find the highest voltage per volume. Lime?

I suggested super caps of course, but later found out that it needs to be something her daughter can make since it is part of one of her homework assignments.  I suggested making a lemon juce battery.  I also said I would look into ways of increasing the output voltage with electrical components since the goal of the exercise is to see who can construct a battery that generates the highest voltage.  I have a few ideas but was wondering if anyone had any suggestions that would not be too complex.  Sorry for the long email, but I thought the story was worth sharing.
