Arcola Energy has been involved in hydrogen fuel cell education for over 10 years, delivering hands-on learning to more than 80,000 young people from Aberdeen to Abu Dhabi to Jakarta.
Our workshops and resources are developed and delivered by STEM professionals, offering a real life insight into STEM careers. The result is high quality STEM workshops that are exciting combinations of engineering, renewable energy and basic coding.
For ages 9-16 the Hydrogen Car Challenge is a hands-on “design, build, race” team exercise. For ages 8-12 the hydrogen robot workshop is designed to introduce practical programming and engineering skills.
Our Schools Hydrogen Challenges offer our Workshops to schools across an entire city or region. Leading to a high profile final that can be focus for inviting local politicians or industry partners, this is a great way to engage not only young people and teachers, but also government and industry decision-makers.
