This STEM approved vehicle comes straight from the year 2099 and runs on clean hydrogen fuel using a next generation reversible
Polymer Electrolyte Membrane (PEM) fuel cell and offers a futuristic feel for what transportation could look like in the next decades.
Includes solar panel to power the production of hydrogen, infrared control helps guide the car once its tank is filled with fuel, and it comes
with a full manual on CD, experiment guide. Check out the video demo, the car is super cool looking and even lights up!

Watch as oxygen and hydro-gen gases are formed in two transparent containers in the back of the vehicle. The kit's fuel cell unit combines water electrolysis
and fuel cell functions into one device. The car steers independently of the user once it hits a barrier, and cool blue LED lights flash from inside the cockpit.
Study the effect of heat on solar panels, the effect of shade on solar panels, and the effect of tilt angle on solar panels.
Find the solar panel's maximum power point, then use the electrolysis mode to generate hydrogen and oxygen from water,
the fuel cell generates electricity from the hydrogen. Then, determine the minimum voltage for water decomposition as well as polarization states for the fuel cells.
