RENEWABLE ENERGY

Utilizing our solar house and wind turbine exhibits, students will focus on those two specific forms of energy. They will also explore the role played by hydrogen fuel cells in the coming years for both energy storage and as an alternative to batteries in electric vehicles. Student teams will use a hydrogen reverse fuel cell car model to make hydrogen from water, and to use this same hydrogen to power the car. Program will run for 2 hours and 10 minutes.
