Renewable energy is the wave of the future and you can discover how it works with this educational science kit. Experiment with a hydrogen fuel cell, solar energy, wind turbines, and water electrolysis. An entire miniature renewable energy system can be constructed on a small scale. This set includes a wind turbine module, a solar photovoltaic panel, an electrolyzer, a PEM fuel cell, and hydrogen storage system. You'll be able to learn the whole system step by step, configure it in different ways, and visualize the workings of clean energy principles from start to finish. A complete manual that explains the technology and defines experiments is included on CD.
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. Compatible with Windows 98/ME/2000/XP/7.
Some household materials required: scissors, screwdriver, 2AA batteries, 100ml purified or distilled water.
