Project Instructions: The Fuel Cycle of the Future project

The sun is setting on a brisk fall evening, and all of a sudden your TV turns off right in the middle of your favorite show! Without the sun, the solar cells on your roof cannot generate electricity to run your appliances. Many forms of renewable energy are not available at all times of the day and night. But what if you could store this energy? You could watch TV all night long!

With this energy science kit, you will explore a cutting-edge method for storing renewable energy by breaking up water molecules into hydrogen and oxygen. The hydrogen and oxygen are fuels that can be burned in devices such as fuel cells to produce clean electricity when it is dark!

This kit follows the procedures from the Science Buddies food science project Water to Fuel to Water: The Fuel Cycle of the Future.
