DIY Fuel Cell Science Kit
What can you do with the DIY Fuel Cell Science Kit from Horizon? Whatever you can dream up. Everything you need to split water and use its hydrogen to generate electricity is included. What that electricity powers is up to you. Use our included activity guide or come up with your own ideas.
How will you shape the future of energy?
Science kit for kids
Students are tasked with designing and fabricating a car that is powered by H2. First, they will sketch out their ideas on paper in order to help them come up with a plan of how they want to design their vehicle.
Next, they will need to source materials that are strong enough to hold the components of the fuelcell system, but light enough to allow the car to travel as far as possible. Finally, they will build their prototype and test it!
What is included in the horizon energy curriculum? The lab equipment is just the beginning. We’ve built the Horizon Energy Curriculum to provide teachers with multiple resources for engaging their students.
