Hydrogen Fuel Cell Car Science Kit

Item# KT-FUELCCK

Save now! Put together this hydrogen fuel cell car experiment kit to see for yourself how clean, efficient fuel cell power works!

Just add distilled water to the onboard tank and hook up the solar cell or battery pack to begin the process of electrolysis that produces hydrogen gas, which the fuel cell then combines with oxygen to produce enough electricity to power the car.

This hydrogen fuel cell car kit includes a motorized chassis with an LED light and a motor, reversible polymer electrolyte membrane (PEM) fuel cell, solar cell, power supply battery pack with leads, cylinders for water and hydrogen gas, and other necessary parts. Build the car with common household tools. You supply distilled water and two AA batteries.

This kit becomes a full unit study with the included Renewable Energy Science Education CD-ROM, which contains a 129-page digital (PDF) textbook on renewable energy by Dr. Colleen Spiegel, a 124-page experiment manual, flash animations to show how fuel cells work, technical support, and a kit assembly guide. The textbook includes 7 chapters that cover topics such as climate change, solar energy, wind energy, electrolysis, fuel cells, hydrogen power, and electronics. The material is appropriate for middle school through high school, and advanced topics are included for the upper grade levels. The experiment manual is written for the complete Renewable Energy Science Kit, but has tips for adapting the experiments to this specific kit. Compatible with Windows 98/ME/2000/XP/7.

The Fuel Cell Car can be used as a science fair project. Here are a few ideas to get you started.

Science Fair Project Ideas:

  • Find the best time of the day to refuel the Fuel Cell Car with energy from the sun. Does solar energy or battery power refuel it more quickly?
  • How does temperature affect the refueling process? How does temperature affect the amount of time the Fuel Cell Car can run before refueling?
  • Does the performance of the fuel cell improve or decrease over time? How can you reduce refueling time and extend operating time?

H2O Fuel Cell Car Kit Review by
This hydrogen fuel cell car kit is excellent for older students (7th gade+). Combined with experiments in electrolysis, it demonstrates a practical application to "making little bubbles in water". The scientist likes to make bubbles by electrolysis; the engineer asks, "So what?" The hydrogen fuel cell answers that question and shows cutting edge automotive engineering.
