Teachers can use these resources to teach fuel cell technology and hydrogen in the classroom or for after-school programs.

  • CaFCP's How it Works book explains the technology with clean illustrations and simple text.
  • CaFCP developed two sets of classroom lessons designed to fit into units that high school science teachers already teach. The activities and experiments do not require that you buy special equipment.

Other sources of classroom materials include:

  • PBS Newshour Extra Lesson Plan: Automobile choices and alternative fuels - background, activities and critical analysis
  • H2 Educate from The NEED Project includes PDF teacher and student guides to download. Designed for middle school and high school science classes.
  • U.S. Department of Energy’s EERE Energy Education website has links to more than 350 lesson plans and activities about energy efficiency and renewable energy for grades K-12. Each includes a short summary that identifies curriculum integration, time, materials, and national standards. It includes information about the Junior Solar Sprint/Hydrogen Fuel Cell Competitions for middle school students.
