TEACH THROUGH PLAY AND YOUR ONLINE LESSONS WILL BE UNFORGETTABLE

Educators! 

Do you want your online lessons to be fun and cool? Do you want to be part of an international community of educators promoting environmental awareness while simultaneously creating enthusiastic scientists and engineers actively engaging with chemistry, physics, and applied mechanics? And in the end, they will have blast racing their fuel-cell cars!

H2DIY Home is a unique platform for distance education for elementary and middle school students in the field of science and renewable energy sources.  The program offers comprehensive solutions for students, teachers and demonstrates that distance learning can be at least as effective as in a traditional setting. Why? Because it is interactive, creative and endlessly fun!

Your students will learn the chemistry of molecular structures and elemental compounds while designing and building their own fuel cell-powered vehicles! In addition, by solely using materials they find in their surrounding environment, preferably recyclable, they will gain an appreciation for the importance of promoting renewable energy and contributing to a common sustainable future. 

Our kit includes instructions and all necessary parts to assemble a functioning hydrogen car. Once your students familiarize themselves with the technology, encourage them to build their own car from scratch and then use the Fuel Cell and motor to power it. Let them become engineers and designers of their own unique vehicle! How much imagination do they have?

"There is a long way to go from improving a small toy car design to improving the world, but this activity can become the crucial first step on the journey towards forming a better, cleaner future."

Educational Objectives

Due to its broad spectrum, the H2DIY Home can be integrated into the curricula of science classes like Chemistry and Physics as well as social studies classes like Art and Ecology.

Students analyze the difference between non-renewable and renewable energy, such as solar, wind, hydro, biomass, geothermal, and most of all hydrogen. They will understand why it is so crucial to promote sustainability by pursuing new green energy sources, utilize recycled materials, and see themselves are part of a larger global community. We strive to translate the well-known motto: “Think Globally, Act Locally” into every lesson!

H2DIY Home promotes self-awareness, develops self-control skills, while simultaneously cultivating the principle of fair play.

Students will also learn how to organize their time and gain valuable project management skills by learning to prioritize tasks in preparation for testing their designs. After the final race, students are encouraged to measure the traveled distances, examine their cars, take notes, and find out why some cars traveled further than others. This will in turn help them explore ways how to improve their designs and make them more effective.
