Horizon FCJJ-18 Fuel Cell H-Racer

  • Powered by solar panel or hydrogen fuel
  • See-through design to see how it works
  • Alternative power teaching aid
  • Educational yet also a fun toy
  • One of Time Magazine’s best inventions

The Fuel Cell H-Racer is a fun, interactive tool for both kids and adults to take a hands-on approach in learning about how renewable energy works. The H-Racer can be powered by either solar energy or hydrogen fuel. When using the solar panel, energy from the sun will power the fueling station and charge the car’s fuel cell. To power the racer with hydrogen the fueling station needs to be filled with water so that it can draw hydrogen from it; the connected tube will then transfer the hydrogen to the car’s fuel cell for power. The H-Racer was labeled as one of Time Magazine’s best inventions. Included with the kit is a renewable energy educational CD to help further educate users on these cutting edge technologies while also providing an experiment manual and assembly guide. The Fuel Cell H-Racer works great as a classroom teaching aid or for educational entertainment at home.

Upon pressing down on the soap dispenser the SquidSoap bottle will mark the palm of your hand with an FDA approved temporary ink marker. This orange ink dot left on your palm can easily be removed by 20 seconds of good hand washing making it very clear to a child whether or not they washed their hands the proper amount of time.
