Experiment Kits introduce primary and secondary school students to the amazing science of renewable energy technology. Here, they can discover key principles that are essential for a comprehensive understanding, not just of solar, wind and fuel cells, but also of electrochemistry, physics and engineering. Electrolysis, energy conversion, electrical circuits, mechanical energy, all of which are STEM concepts that are integral to learning about future energy.

Renewable Energy
Science Kit

sc kits

 

 

The Renewable Energy Science Kit demonstrates the workings of a clean energy technology system on a miniature scale. Power an electrical circuit by solar panel or a wind turbine with profiled blades based on NASA aeronautics. Generate hydrogen through water electrolysis and convert it into electricity using a PEM fuel cell. Whichever combination of technologies you want to explore, this science kit is a comprehensive introduction to the principles behind renewable microgrids. This kit contains small-scale wind turbine, solar cell, fuel cell, electrolyzer and more.

Hydrocar

hydro 1

 

 

Hydrocar demonstrates a complete, clean-energy system with solar to hydrogen power generation. Powered by electricity from sunlight, the reversible fuel cell illustrates the principles of water electrolysis, separating hydrogen from water and then recombining these elements to create power in an extremely efficient process. Also, the car can steer independently to avoid running into obstacles.

i-H2GO

i-H2GO

 

 

The i-H2GO is the most technologically advanced toy car on the market. Harness the power of sunlight with a solar panel in order to charge the hydrogen refuelling station. Use the station to generate hydrogen through water electrolysis, refuel the car and charge up the super capacitor. Transparent casing and LED lights are designed to highlight all these electrochemical processes — the same processes as in real-scale hybrid vehicles. Control the car using a smartphone or an electronic tablet – engage gyro-steering to turn the i-H2GO’s wheels simply by tilting the device.

Solar Hydrogen
Science Kit

Solar hydro

 

 

Invent your own clean energy applications using fuel cells and the power of the sun. Generate hydrogen in a completely sustainable process by using a solar panel to power water electrolysis. Convert hydrogen into electrical energy with the PEM fuel cell and power your applications. As a starting-off point for would-be inventors, the kit comes with a small electric motor and propeller blade.

Salt Water Fuel Cell
Science Kit

salt water fuel

 

 

Now you can demonstrate a cutting edge fuel cell concept: combine a saltwater electrolyte with magnesium plates to generate electrical energy. This kit enables you to investigate the science behind saltwater fuel cell technology, either by powering the included mini-turbine or creating your own power applications.

Ethanol Fuel Cell
Science Kit

ethanol 1

 

 

Discover the workings of a direct ethanol fuel cell and the principles behind the conversion of ethanol into electrical energy through oxidisation. Begin the process in the ethanol/water mix container, then transfer this solution into the fuel cell via silicon tubing where it will be converted into electrical energy to power a mini turbine.

Thermal Power
Science Kit

 

Now you can generate electricity using nothing more than a combination of hot and cold water and a special conversion cell. As the temperature evens out between the two containers of water, the power level drops. LED and mini turbines demonstrate the variance in the electrical power being generated. Also, there are two thermometers to keep track of the temperature levels.

Horizon Energy
Monitor

horizon energy1

 

 

Voltage, current, power, joules, resistance and even RPM speed become available at the touch of a button displayed either on the LCD screen of the monitor itself or as graphical data on your PC. The Energy Monitor helps bring lab and field experiments back into the classroom, making it the ideal tool to complement the Renewable Energy Science Kit (FCJJ-37).

HYDROFILL PRO

On-Demand Hydrogen Supply For Classrooms

hydrofill1

 

 

This is the world’s only on-demand hydrogen supply system for refilling HYDROSTIK PRO metal hydride cartridges. By generating hydrogen through water electrolysis, Hydrofill enables homes and classrooms to become energy self-sufficient. Perfect for next generation science kits and engineering projects such as EDUSTAK PRO and EDUSTAK Junior (FCSU-32 and FCSU-33), Horizon Fuel Cell Developer Kits (FCDK-1.5, FCDK-12 and FCDK-30), the Electric Mobility Experiment Set (FCJJ-30).

HYDROSTIK PRO

Secure & Versatile Hydrogen Storage

hydrostik

 

 

Hold the latest hydrogen storage technology in the palm of your hand. Rather than compressing hydrogen gas, the safe and reliable HYDROSTIK binds hydrogen with a metal alloy to form a solid metal hydride. The HYDROKSTIK PRO is included with all of Horizon’s Education’s advanced educational kits and can be refilled with the HYDROFILL PRO refueling station.

Electric Mobility
Experiment Set

electric mobility1

 

 

Measure the superior energy density and power of the super capacitor. Compare different kinds of fuel cell technology – the saltwater fuel cell and two types of micro-PEM fuel cells that exploit the energy efficiency of hydrogen fuel stored in the HYDROSTIK PRO metal hydride cartridge – all of which convert elements into electrical energy. Plus, you can demonstrate the power of sunlight with the solar panel and generate electricity with the hand crank.
