The future is bright – bright green. So prepare students for that future by introducing them to key technologies for the future: fuel cells and magnetic levitation. The first half of this three-week unit focuses on magnetic levitation – or maglev – vehicles. Maglev has been popular in Europe for years, and now students can learn about maglev transportation concepts right in the classroom. They calculate acceleration, investigate friction, and then design their own maglev vehicles to race against classmates’ vehicles. In the section on fuel cells, students work with a model car powered by a small fuel cell. Experiments with electrolysis, efficiency, and resistance help them connect scientific concepts with the real-world applications of fuel cells.

Have a class of more than 24 students? No problem! Four-student add-on packages are available.
