Fuel Cell Car and Experiment Kit

Fall 2002 Doing & Learning/Toy
Ages: 12 & Up
Manufacturer: Thames & Kosmos
Price: $150.00
Wow! - usually when toys say there are 30 experiments, there are a few basic experiments and the others amount to small changes and variations on the basic ones. Not so here. The experiments, based on building a model car that runs on water, are versatile and cover a wide range of phenomena. The background for each phenomenon is extensive. The “lab manual” and experiment guide is a 96 page fount of information -- from how fuel cells work as an energy source, to the social effects of cars powered by fuel cells.

For the budding physicist or environmentalist in your house, or the engineer at Grandma’s, this kit is a highway to fun.
