Function and Application
What are environmentally-friendly ways to generate electricity? How does a fuel cell work, and how can you use one to produce hydrogen? In the future, renewables will become our most important sources of energy. This set illustrates the generation, storage, and use of electricity produced from natural sources like water, wind, and the sun using different models and a wide variety of experiments. The powerful solar module can be attached in many different ways for flexible use in the models. The included Gold Cap is used for energy storage, and can slowly emit the stored energy. The fuel cell vividly shows how water is split into its two components hydrogen and oxygen. This awakens students' interest in future energy forms and trains them on key skills. This set can be used in supervised and unsupervised learning, and sets the standard at many schools for how to approach the topic of renewable energies
This set covers the curriculum topics storage and use of electric power from water, wind and sun as well as the fuel cell. In all experiments students examine the main question how to generate electricity in an environmentally friendly way. The storage and use of electricity from the natural energy sources like water, wind and sun is explained in detail using various models and numerous experiments.
Key Learning Objectives:
- Learn about the basic principles of renewable energy
- Understand how solar modules, solar motors, gold cap energy storage units, and much more work
- Generate, save, and use electricity created from water, wind, and the sun
- Use reversible fuel cells with integrated hydrogen storage to generate energy
