Fuel Cell 10 Car and Experiment Kit
Last year, as we filled our van with diesel, the price was $4.15 a gallon. While fuel prices are more reasonable today, the reality is that we, as a nation, need an alternative fuel source. What it will be and how soon it will happen is anyone's guess.

Provides a Working Knowledge of Fuel Cells
In the meantime, a working knowledge of fuel cells could give your children an advantage in this technologically-driven world. The Thames & Kosmos Fuel Cell Car and Experiment Kit provides a fascinating introduction to this most significant technology, where a chemical reaction is converted into electricity.

The Stuff Energy Leaders Dream Of
Energy leaders dream of a world where individual homes will meet their own electrical needs through the use of fuel cells. The air pollution caused by combustible engines would then be eliminated. Far more efficient than a generator, fuel cells do not run down or require recharging.

Learn How a Fuel Cell Produces Energy
By constructing his own reversible fuel cell car model that actually runs on water, your child will learn how a fuel cell produces energy. A full-color 64-page experiment manual offers step-by-step assembly instructions and a comprehensive lesson in solar cells and fuel cells explaining the physics upon which this exciting technology is based.

Just Add Water and Batteries!
The kit also contains the ecomplete reversible fuel cell (hydrocycle system), the 3-volt crystalline silicon solar cell, car parts, gas tanks, small electronic parts, digital multimeter, and more. All you will need to provide is the distilled water and, for some experiments, you will need two AA batteries. As absorbing as the projects are, this is not an easy subject and this kit will be most successful in the hands of teens.

What's the difference?
So what's the difference between the old Fuel Cell Car Experiment Set and this new Fuel Cell 10?

New Fuel Cell 10 Car Experiment Set:
  • Newest set
  • Flashier car design
  • Rewritten manual is easier to read
  • Same topics covered but with fewer hands-on experiments approx 7 experiments in this set with some additional tests.
  • Build a battery-powered car, a solar car and a fuel cell car
  • Discover how fuel cells work
  • See how solar cells turn sunlight into electricity
  • Learn how to use a multimeter to measure electricity
  • Read about how solar cells are made
  • Calculate the power of the solar cell and fuel cell
