  • Engineer new solutions for optimization of car’s performance
  • Examine the three fields of energy management
  • Comprehend hybrid propulsion technology and work to minimize environmental impacts
  • Learn about data acquisition and discover how to manipulate, analyze and interpret graphs and data gathered from the car on the road and on the bench
  • Understand the expected performance of a fuel cell system and how to get to optimum operation
  • Explore the difference between expected performance and experimental results

You will need a source of hydrogen such as Hydrofill Pro to charge the supplied Hydrostik Pro cartridge with hydrogen.
