The Tutorial Renewable Set is your complete solution for teaching renewable energy, consisting of an Electrolyzer, Fuel Cell, Reversible Fuel Cell, Solar Module, and Measurement Set. The sets feature modular components for flexibility as well as easy set-up and use and allow experiments across the whole range of hydrogen applications.
Recommended Grades: 6 - 12
• Fuel cells with air-breathing option.
• Magnetic bases, allowing horizontal or vertical assembly. Also includes metallic vehicle chassis for solar and fuel cell car set-ups.
• Redesigned gas storage tanks with a compact and easy-to-use design and easy-to-read measurement marks.
The PEM electrolyzer cell will allow a number of experiments in the realm of renewable energy. For instance, run solar experiments to power the electrolyzer and store the resulting hydrogen and oxygen gases. Then, generate power with the PEM fuel cell in either Hydrogen / Oxygen or Hydrogen / Air mode. Finally, build a self-contained solar-hydrogen-system, or fill up a hydrogen-powered model car at its own solar hydrogen station.
The Tutorial Renewable Set also includes a 1-Cell Rebuildable PEMFC Kit, which allows students to assemble and disassemble a working PEM fuel cell.
