What It Is

Build a car that runs on water and sunlight! With a completely redesigned body, re-written manual, and new display stand, the Fuel Cell Car kit is better than ever! This 10th anniversary edition features 30 hands-on experiments that help kids understand electrolysis, solar cells, and fuel cells. The kit uses parts that are similar to those included in the original edition. Kids will build and operate a unique reversible hydrogen fuel cell, powered by water and sunlight, while learning about "green" energy. A 64-page manual guides kids through each of the experiments. This kit is a great introduction to one of the most significant technologies of the early 21st century!

If, as many are predicting, the future lies in green energy, this is a wonderful way for kids to start exploring, learning and building. The hefty price means that it's not for everyone. However, this is a well-developed kit that inspires both creative play and real-world learning.
