F.R.E.E. (Fabulous Resources for Energy Education)
Helping Teachers Teach about Energy
Resources: Future Energy
Did you know the same technology that was used for the astronauts to go to the moon is also available at F.R.E.E. for educational use? H2 fuel is a clean and emission free energy alternative. It combines hydrogen gas and oxygen gas to create water and this also creates energy. This energy source is created when distilled water is put through a cell. Once in the cell, the ions in the water are separated and the circuits turn on. The ions react when they pass through a light bulb and electrical current is created for use to actually power cars!
At Fabulous Resources for Energy Education, we offer materials and activities to be loaned out for H2 Fuel education. Our popular product is the Intelligent FC Cell Car Kit that allows students to understand the uses of fuels cells. Find more materials, activities and lesson plans for H2 Fuel below.
F.R.E.E. Future Energy Materials:
Intelligent FC Cell Car Kits
This is a fun way to teach students the uses of fuel cells and how they are used to power electrical devices with green energy. Included is a teaching manual along with experiments to test out the car kits. Available for Iowa educators to borrow (F.R.E.E. Loan Form).
H-Tec Solar – H2 Demo
The solar hydrogen experimentation system allows students to experiment with producing and storing of hydrogen and oxygen, fuel cell efficiency, and operating the fuel cell. Available for Iowa educators to borrow (F.R.E.E. Loan Form).
Dismountable Fuel Cells
This kit is a dismountable fuel PEM cell. It allows students to take apart and understand the dynamics of fuel cells. Available for Iowa educators to borrow (F.R.E.E. Loan Form).
Methanol Fuel Cell
Help students understand the differences between a gas (hydrogen) as an energy carrier and a liquid (methanol) as an energy carrier. This is a simple activity that will allow the students to discover which cell is more powerful. Available for Iowa educators to borrow (F.R.E.E. Loan Form).
H2 Videos and Book Kits
We offer H2 Fuel education materials to be loaned out to educators to help plan activities teach students the importance of H2 Fuel. Available for Iowa educators to borrow (F.R.E.E. Loan Form).
