H2 Grand Prix Explorer Educational Program (XPR)
Students are tasked with designing and fabricating a car that is powered by H2. First, they will sketch out their ideas on paper in order to help them come up with a plan of how they want to design their vehicle.
Next, they will need to source materials that are strong enough to hold the components of the fuel cell system, but light enough to allow the car to travel as far as possible.
Finally, they will build their prototype and test it in a race against others to see which design is able to travel the furthest.
Exploring Energy Solutions Has Never Been This Fun
Thanks to the hands-on experience, there are plenty of ways for budding talent to be engaged through play! A future designer might be most comfortable with sketching, whereas aspiring engineers will enjoy the manufacturing part of the car. Analytical students will enjoy the data collection and assessment which will be very valuable for future prototypes. No matter from what perspective they start, all of them will bring their piece of the puzzle while working in small groups, where they’ll learn how to communicate, coordinate and compromise to get the optimal solution.
The H2GP EXPLORER is a great opportunity for science experiments as it includes a curriculum that allows you to flexibly incorporate it into your class schedule. Whether you are interested in a single day of cool chemistry experiments, a one-week long science fair project, or a month of science experiments in renewable energy during regular classes, it is all possible with H2GP XPR Science Program.
The H2GP EXPLORER allows students to design & build their own fuel cell-powered vehicles using recycled materials.
Through its broad spectrum and developed curriculum, the H2GP XPR will easily fit in science, math and art classes.
