FCHgo! launches international school contest on fuel cells and hydrogen
World of the future: the best FCH application
The contest “World of the future: the best FCH application” aims to raise awareness and interest in fuel cells and hydrogen technologies (FCH) among teachers, school children and their families. What could future applications of fuel cells and hydrogen look like? That is the challenge of this contest, it encourages students to explore the potential of FCH applications and their significant contribution to European energy targets.
The school contest launched by the EU funded Horizon 2020 project FCHgo! invites pupils from all over the world to imagine future applications of FCH technologies in everyday life. Teams of at least 4 pupils should work together on a project and document it in a creative way – whether that be a story, movie, drawing etc. The submitted projects should also have a didactical value both for teachers and for the students, facilitating better understanding of the way FCH applications work. The contest features different school levels, from primary to upper secondary school, and is organised in two stages, national competitions are followed by a final international one.
You don’t have to be a student to participate in the FCHgo contest
Schools interested in participating can get inspired by the project’s educational materials on the FCHgo website. Teachers and stakeholders from FCH industries are invited to help teams with their application for the contest. FCHgo is in particular looking for educational, scientific and industry stakeholders from the sector of renewable energy and hydrogen, which are ready to support the pupils’ learning experience along the contest. From providing technical/scientific advice to donating prizes for winning teams or sponsoring (national) award ceremonies – there are many opportunities to become an official partner of the FCHgo contest.
