Science Week 2017

The objective of all the activities that are developed within the Science Week 2017 is to bring closer to students of all ages the hydrogen and fuel cells science and technologies, not well known among the students, explaining different applications of these technologies.

The CNH2 will organize days where students from schools and high schools of any city will be received which previously booked an appointment. This activity will take place between 13 to 17 November 2017.

The different areas, which are part of the Science Week 2017 itinerary, are:

A – Training Area

In this area, we perform a presentation of the CNH2, its objectives and functions. We also present the basic concepts related to the hydrogen and the energy, production and storage of hydrogen, the fuel cells and their applications or the hydrogen security in order to understand the rest of activities.



B – Interaction with Technologies Area

This area allows a greater contact and interaction with the technologies. This zone has six workstations related to the hydrogen and fuel cells technologies, composed by  physical and experimental demonstrators, as well as touch screens with information and interactive games for the use of the visitor.


C – Application Area.

In this section the visitors can see, handle and manipulate applications for the production of electricity from a combination  of renewable energies and hydrogen and fuel cells technologies, such as a home electricity supply, toy car powered by hydrogen or a Scalextric that works with a fuel cell. Furthermore, along this tour,  different equipment and real components are showed in order to deep into the details of the rest of activities.
