A really cool way to show how hydrogen-powered cars work! This updated H-Racer includes IR remote control steering, glowing lights, faster speed, and longer runtimes. Fuel up this small, sleek car with hydrogen gas produced in the refueling station by electrolysis of water, using either the included solar panel or AA batteries. Then watch it go as the hydrogen combines with oxygen from the air in the onboard fuel cell, generating a DC current that makes the racer's motor run. As you experiment with the H-Racer, you'll learn about water electrolysis and fuel cells (the science behind hydrogen power) as well as recent advances in fuel cell technology.
Some assembly is required to use the H-Racer 2. You provide two AA batteries.
This kit becomes a full unit study with the included Renewable Energy Science Education CD-ROM, which contains a 129-page digital (PDF) textbook on renewable energy by Dr. Colleen Spiegel, a 124-page experiment manual, flash animations to show how fuel cells work, technical support, and a kit assembly guide. The textbook includes 7 chapters that cover topics such as climate change, solar energy, wind energy, electrolysis, fuel cells, hydrogen power, and electronics. The material is appropriate for middle school through high school, and advanced topics are included for the upper grade levels. The experiment manual is written for the complete Renewable Energy Science Kit, but has tips for adapting the experiments to this specific kit. Compatible with Windows 98/ME/2000/XP/7.
