Discover the principles behind the real-scale fuel cell vehicles.

Description

Horizon's DIY Fuel Cell Science Classroom Pack enables students to discover the principles behind the real-scale fuel cell vehicles currently being rolled out across the world. Power an electrical circuit by solar panel or a wind turbine with profiled blades based on NASA aeronautics. Generate hydrogen through water electrolysis and convert it into electricity using a PEM fuel cell. Whichever combination of technologies you want to explore, this science kit is a comprehensive introduction to the principles behind renewable microgrids.

Investigate reaction yields, reduction and oxidation, and other chemistry concepts by performing electrolysis reactions. Learn about conservation of energy, electric power, and other physics concepts by modifying your fuel cell car.

Experiments and Activities include: Assembly and operation of the kit, The Effect of Heat on Solar Panels, The Effect of Shade on Solar Panels, The Effect of Tilt Angle on Solar Panels, Finding the Solar Pane's Maximum Power Point (*requires variable resistor module-sold separately), Electrolysis Mode Generating Hydrogen and Oxygen from Water, Fuel Cell Mode Generating Electricity from Hydrogen and Oxygen, Determining the Minimum Voltage for Water Decomposition, and Polarization States for Hydrogen Fuel Cells.

Contents: 12 reversible fuel cells (Transparent or blue), 12 sets of silicone tubing, 24 (5ml) syringes, 24 (20mL) syringes for storage of hydrogen and oxygen, 12 LEDs with bare PCB board, 12 sets of crocodile/banana wire, 12 sets of red and black pins, 12 battery packs, 12 motors (required input 0.6V), 12 gearboxes, 24 pressure relief valves, 24 plastic clamps, 12 bags to protect fuel cell, 1 blue box.

The DIY Chassis Classroom Pack is an add-on kit for the DIY Fuel Cell Science Classroom Pack. Enough materials for 12 students.
