Product Description

Horizon’s Fuel Cell Car Science Kit enables students to discover the principles behind the real-scale fuel cell vehicles currently being rolled out across the world. A reversible PEM fuel cell first electrolyzes water to separate oxygen and hydrogen molecules. This hydrogen is then converted into electrical energy to power the car. Plus, the car drives itself - capable of negotiating obstacles independent of the user. Cutting edge technology and RC gadget fun in one science kit!


✔ Best entry level fuel cell car kit on the market and one of Horizon ́s best sellers!
✔ Clearly demonstrates the science behind electrolysis and the decomposition of water into oxygen and hydrogen.

✔ Includes solar panel for powering electrolysis, and complete experiment guide on CD
