Wind to Hydrogen Science Kit
Physics Educational Materials
Alternative Energy Learning Activities
- Contains a hydrogen fuel cell and wind turbine
- Electric motor can be used for various applications
- 12 years old and up
The Wind to Hydrogen Science Education Kit enables students to invent their own clean energy applications using a small electric motor powered by a fuel cell. Hydrogen is produced through water electrolysis by a reversible PEM fuel cell that is itself powered by a wind turbine with profiled blades based on NASA aeronautics. This hydrogen is then converted to electrical energy by the fuel cell and can be used to power a small fan.
Caution: Restriction Comments: This science kit should only be used by persons 12 years old and up, and only under the supervision of adults who have familiarized themselves with the safety measures described in the science kit. Warning: Choking Hazard: Not suitable for children under 3 yrs. The fuel cell generates gases that are very easily ignited.
