Multi Energy Car Science Kit

Horizon Educational

SKU: FCJJ-31

Regular price $109.00

The Multi Energy Car Science Kit lets students experiment with tomorrow’s sustainable transport solutions. Measure the superior energy density and power of the super capacitor. Compare different kinds of fuel cell technology, all of which convert elements into electrical energy: the direct ethanol fuel cell, the salt water fuel cell and PEM fuel cell. Plus, you can demonstrate the power of sunlight with the solar panel and generate electricity with the hand crank.
