Car of the Future: Hydrogen Challenge with Arcola Energy
Thurs. 15th Nov.

This hands-on model car building workshop allows pupils to design and build a hydrogen powered model vehicle. Working in small groups, each group will be provided with a Hydrogen fuel cell to power their vehicle. Groups will then race their cars against each other to discover which design is the most efficient. The pupils are encouraged to take an iterative approach, designing and building vehicles fast so they can see what works and what doesn’t, working out ways to improve their distance each time they test.

Suitable for 7-12 years (4th, 5th and 6th class)

The times of the workshops are:

9.45am – 10.45am
11.15am – 12.15pm
1.00pm – 2.00pm
