Construction of a Microscale Fuel Cell

This Construction of a Microscale Fuel Cell lesson plan also includes:

Fuel cells are being called the "energy source" of the future. Allow your high school chemistry class to construct a miscroscale fuel cell, complete with all components to generate energy. This engaging activity will allow them to apply concepts of chemistry while acquiring a more thorough understanding of environmental preservation.
