A fuel cell is an environmentally friendly energy production device that holds great promise for the future of energy, a viable alternative to fossil fuels that merits the investigation and attention it receives. Immerse yourself in the movement with this award-winning science kit, and build a model car that runs on hydrogen gas, using a unique reversible fuel cell. See for yourself how a car can run without the use of dirty energy sources. First, use the fuel cell to spearate water into hydrogen and oxygen gas. Then, plug in the motor and the fuel cell uses these gases to produce electricity that moves the car across the floor or table. The only by-product is clean water!
The special Proton Exchange Membrane in the fuel cell allows it to both split water into its constitutive elements (hydrogen and oxygen) as well as to combine the two gases into water; the fuel cell is thus designated as "reversible" on account of these dual capabilities. The full-color, 16-page instructional manual provides clear step-by-step instructions and scientific explanations. Discover the possbilities fuel cells and other alternative energy sources afford, and try your hand at designing your own fully functional, racing, rip-roaring fuel cell car!
