Dec. 4, 2009 - PRLog -- Accepting the man made inference, this terrible legacy created by current generations will take decades to control. keen2learn believe whichever school of thought you subscribe to; natural event or man made, the effects of global warming will be left to our children to resolve.  It will fall to the children in school to learn, understand and take charge of any ongoing solution to minimise the effect.  Educational games specialists Keen2learn’s range of renewable energy games and teaching resources are for use in school and at home to help children learn about green renewable energy.

“The resolution of this vital subject area will fall to future generations” said Alistair Owens managing director of keen2learn. “It is imperative children understand the cause, effect and solution of global warming. Our new range of renewable energy games cover wind, water turbines and hydrogen fuel cells in fun working models  demonstrating the technology now available in renewable energy”.

Keen2learn are using the opportunity of the Copenhagen summit to focus attention on the subject in schools. The products were recently shown at the Design and Technology exhibition in Birmingham where they generated significant attention from teachers.  The fuel cell model car on show is a didactic learning resource that lets children see the conversion of solar energy into hydrogen and oxygen molecules through electrolysis of water and a two way PE membrane. The recombination of the gases through the fuel cell releases electricity used to power a model car. The kit includes a solar panel and a variable load panel with ammeter and voltmeter to show the performance of the cell under different loads.

The Hydrogen fuel cell car was recently reviewed by the National Science Learning centre and the STEM learning centre and is being incorporated into their teaching resources for science teachers  attending  training courses.

The fuel cell is a great cross curricular resource covering chemistry, physics, engineering and maths. Many design teachers were considering how they could mount the fuel cell in different projects. The pack of 6 cars comes with a comprehensive teacher’s guide, worksheets and 30 experiments. A front of class teachers demonstration panel is also available which scales the equipment up to let all the class see the fuel cell in action and measure its performance. “Fuel cells are a future power source and this is a fantastic way to introduce children into their operation and benefits” said Alistair Owens
