How do Fuel Cells work? Where are they used now and potentially in the future?
This program teaches students how fuel cells are being used around the world in both a domestic and industrial capacity. They learn about the electrolysis of water and how hydrogen gas can be produced from this process. We then look at how hydrogen can be used in PEM Fuel Cells to create electrical energy that can power a load such as a fan. Students carry out an experiment to compare the efficiency of hydrogen-fuelled cars and solar-powered cars in terms of energy input versus output.
