Horizon Energy Box

Horizon Educational


Regular price $1,500.00

The Horizon Energy Box provides a complete understanding of how fuel cell technology interacts with renewable energy sources to create an entirely sustainable power grid. Solar power, wind energy, kinetic energy from a hand crank and a demonstration of the incredible storage potential of a super capacitor.

There’s a range of fuel cells to compare: PEM hydrogen fuel cell, the salt water fuel cell and a direct ethanol fuel cell. Countless experiments, so many scientific principles at work and plenty of space for creativity.

  • Fuel cell science from fuel cell experts: PEM, direct
    ethanol, salt water and reversible fuel cells in one kit.
  • Introduction to renewable energy: solar panel,
    wind turbine, temperature cell and hand crank.
  • Includes super capacitor to demonstrate the
    latest in energy storage technology.
  • Includes CD with curriculum content for 40 hours
    of classroom activities.
