“Talented Youth learn about energy and the environment at UD”

Oct. 4, 2008

Working with the Johns Hopkins University Center for Talented Youth (CTY), we led three groups of students.  The students learned about the hydrogen economy, how fuel cells work and how to electrolyze water.  Then, teams of students built mini fuel cell cars and raced to see which car could cross the finish line soonest and which car could last the longest on a single “charge” of hydrogen.

“Nuts and bolts of ingenuity”

Jul. 6, 2009

We led an expanded session on fuel cells and the hydrogen economy for the Engineering Cool Stuff summer camp.  We learned about how fuel cells work with assistance from Click and Clack, the Car Talk guys.  The mini-fuel cell car kits were built with little assistance from the counselors, and the students proved which side of the fuel cell produced hydrogen using the flame test.
