The Horizon Wind to Hydrogen Science Education Kit (FCJJ-56) enables students to invent their own clean energy applications using a small electric motor powered by a fuel cell. Hydrogen is produced through water electrolysis by a reversible PEM fuel cell that is itself powered by a wind turbine with profiled blades based on NASA aeronautics. This hydrogen is then converted to electrical energy by the fuel cell and can be used to power a small fan.

Energy Literacy Framework

1.1 - Energy is a quantity that is transferred from system to system
1.3 - Energy is neither created nor destroyed
1.4 - Energy available to do useful work decreases as it is transferred from system to system
1.5 - Energy comes in different forms and can be divided into categories
1.6 - Chemical and nuclear reactions involve the transfer and transformation of energy
1.7 - Many different units are used to quantify energy
1.8 - Power is a measure of energy transfer rate
4.1 - Humans transfer and transform energy from the environment into forms useful for human endeavors
4.2 - Human use of energy is subject to limits and constraints
4.6 - Humans intentionally store energy for later use in a number of different ways
4.7 - Different sources of energy and the different ways energy can be transformed, transported, and stored each have different benefits and drawbacks
6.1 - Conservation of energy has two very different meanings
6.4 - Earth has limited energy resources
6.5 - Social and technological innovation affects the amount of energy used by human society
6.8 - The amount of energy used can be calculated and monitored

 The Horizon Wind Energy Science Kit (FCJJ-39) you can build a miniature power generation system that converts wind into electrical energy. Experiment with the pitch (angle setting) of turbine blades and find out the optimum number of blades for generating electricity.
 The blue LED flashing lights are easy to see and are perfect for demonstrating the consumption of electricity produced by a fuel cell.
 The Reversible Polymer Electrolyte Membrane (PEM) Fuel Cell combines the functions of an electrolyzer and a fuel cell into ONE device. When applying an electrical current the device acts as an electrolyzer that produces hydrogen and oxygen from de-ionized water. When applying a load, the device behaves as a fuel cell and generates electricity from hydrogen.
 These two storage cylinders, one for hydrogen and one for oxygen, can be used to store 30 milliliters (mL) of hydrogen and oxygen.
 Motor with Fan Propeller Blade
 9 Profile Blades for Turbine
• 3 Sets of 3 Types
 The Renewable Energy Science Education CD includes an E-textbook, assembly guides and an experiment manual complete with flash animations and technical support.
 Kit Accessories
 The textbook contains information about the technology and instructions for a variety of experiments.
