Micro Fuel Cell Science Kit

Horizon Educational

SKU: FCJJ-44

Regular price $249.00

Explore the future of energy storage with Horizon’s Micro Fuel Cell Kit. Power a mini turbine by converting solid state hydrogen in the HYDROSTIK PRO metal hydride cartridge into electrical energy via a Horizon PEM fuel cell. Kids can see the effect as the hydride slowly cools and releases hydrogen into the fuel cell. The process is a model for all micro fuel cell systems— a working example of solid hydrogen storage that can lead to many interesting and creative application ideas.

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