DIY Fuel Cell Science Classroom Pack - H2GP EXPLORER (XPR)
What can you do with the DIY Fuel Cell Science Classroom Pack from Horizon? Whatever you can dream up. Everything you need to split water and use its hydrogen to generate electricity is included. What that electricity powers is up to you. Use our included activity guide or come up with your own ideas.
Finally you can organize your own DIY RACE.
How will you shape the future of energy?

H2GP XPR RACE Educational Program
Students are tasked with designing and fabricating a car that is powered by H2. First, they will sketch out their ideas on paper in order to help them come up with a plan of how they want to design their vehicle.
Next, they will need to source materials that are strong enough to hold the components of the fuelcell system, but light enough to allow the car to travel as far as possible.
Finally, they will build their prototype and test it in a race against others to see which designis able to travel the furthest.
