Build & Experiment with a Car that Runs on Water!

This new Thames & Kosmos Fuel Cell Car & Experiment Kit provides a playful introduction to one of the most significant technologies of the 21st Century. With this kit you can build a model car that actually runs on water!

Pour in water and watch it separate into hydrogen and oxygen, forming a gas to power your vehicle across the floor. Now that we have your attention, roll up your sleeves and find out more through experiments and demonstrations you can do on your own, in a classroom or with friends.

Fuel cells are one of the most promising means of producing energy in the future. Some fuel cells, such as this one, do not consume fossil fuels and therefore are considered environmentally friendly. Automobile manufacturers are already experimenting successfully with this technology and it is widely believed that fuel cells will power automobiles and many electronic devices including laptops and cell phones, in the near future.

With this unique kit, you can build your own experimental reversible fuel cell car to learn more about this energy source. With more than 30 experiments and demonstrations, provided either in the kit or on the Thames and Kosmos web site, users will learn how a reversible fuel cell works to perform electrolysis as well as to create energy. The electricity required to activate electrolysis is created with a large solar cell included in the kit. During electrolysis, water is separated into hydrogen and oxygen and the resulting energy is stored as a gas. When needed, the gas is fed into the fuel cell, which then serves as the power source.

30 Experiments include:

    How to build a solar powered car.
    Effects of direct and indirect radiation.
    Characteristics of a solar module.
    Oxy-Hydrogen test.
    How to construct and load a reversible fuel cell.
    Decomposition of water in the fuel cell.
    Qualitative and quantitative analysis of gas in a fuel cell.
    How efficient is electrolysis?
    How light influences electrolysis.
    Fuel cell-powered car.
    Add your own experiments!
