Like all fuel cells, the one in the X7 Kit produces electricity from a chemical reaction. In this case, the reaction is simple as the X7’s fuel cell converts hydrogen and oxygen directly into electricity and water, resulting in eco-friendly motion kids can see! Since the only byproduct of this reaction is water, the Fuel Cell X7 is extremely green, allowing students to conduct experiments again and again without any new waste or inefficiencies! This cell can also serve as an electrolysis device, meaning it’s able to split water into hydrogen or oxygen, adding another exciting element to the exploration of alternative fuels! Making use of anode and cathode reactions to trigger results, the Fuel Cell X7 Kit is ideal for introducing entry-level entrepreneurs to a replicable model of alternative energy. Its hand-built components and simplistic design make it easy to use at home, in the classroom, or in an afterschool makerspace!
