Fuel Cell Car Science Kit

Horizon’s Fuel Cell Car Science Kit enables students to discover the principles behind the real-scale fuel cell vehicles currently being rolled out across the world.

A reversible PEM fuel cell first electrolyzes water to separate oxygen and hydrogen molecules. This hydrogen is then converted into electrical energy to power the car. Plus, the car drives itself – capable of negotiating obstacles independent of the user. Cutting edge technology and RC gadget fun in one science kit!
