Future car racing engineers put their skills to the test by building a hydrogen powered car and racing it on a racetrack against their friends in a workshop that highlights the incredible wonders of science and green energy at the Abu Dhabi Science Festival 2012.
At the Hydrogen Fuel Cell Car competition, older children ages 10 and above explore the energy-giving properties of hydrogen and then compete against each other to see who managed to harness its power the best.
Pupils discover how specially designed cells can be used to store the powerful energy and weigh up whether hydrogen can compete with battery power by building their very own model hydrogen-powered car. Their skills are then put to the test as they race the cars in a thrilling finale to the workshop.
This workshop has been running daily at the Abu Dhabi Science Festival 2012, at ADNEC and those interested can still catch it today and tomorrow from 2:45 PM to 8:45 PM, available in 45-minute slots.
Iman Mohamed Al Ali, mother of Abdulla had brought him after school after hearing about the Festival and was impressed by her son's concentration expressing, "I never knew Abdulla could do this, he understood about hydrogen from his chemistry class but never had the chance to get so creative. We are busy looking around now for more workshops that he will learn from and enjoy at the same. The Festival provides an absolutely wonderful opportunity and beneficial experience for kids!"
This hands-on workshop is also part of the many Festival's exciting 'Green Energy' themed activities, which has students competing against each other in several workshops such as the Introductory Wind Turbines and Advance Wind Turbines workshops, where children design and test turbines, seeing who has mastered the wind and can generate the most electricity.
Temperatures rise at the explosive and fiery Future Energy Show, as visitors are enthralled by the dynamic future of clean energy and also discover that world-class research is happening right here in the UAE! While the Super Cool Game Show, has contestants racing around the clock to see who can save the most money and energy on their model house as it deliberated overheated.
