Hooray! This project is fully funded

Nearly all of our energy needs are supplied by burning carbon-based fuels, such as oil and coal. This is increasing carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, which is causing a subsequent increase in global warming. Scientists tell us we need to find alternatives, and hydrogen power may be the answer. Energy experts have described it as moving away from a carbon economy and into a hydrogen economy. I teach chemistry and integrated chemistry and physics to high school students in a public school in suburban Indianapolis. Most of my students are juniors or seniors, and in just one or two years they will be in the "real world" making decisions as consumers and citizens. One of the great responsibilities I feel as a teacher is to educate these kids on all of the options out there, so they can be a part of the solution and realize that we can indeed move away from our dependence on petroleum. The materials I need to help my students learn about hydrogen power are very few, as I already have many of the items necessary. Your funding of this project will enable my students to learn about hydrogen fuel cells, which very well may be the transportation fuel of the future.
