Fat Cat Fab Lab is excited to bring you Carlos Uranga and Project H2MDK, a micro-hydrogen fuel cell tutorial and hackathon.
This meetup will be an introduction to this open source micro-hydrogen fuel cell Arduino kit that allows you to power and hack any Arduino project. Project H2MDK is also the ultimate STE(a)M education tool for middle school and up!
So if you are an Arduino, Next Generation Education, or Clean Tech/Hydrogen Fuel Cell enthusiast, bring your Arduinos and come join us for this fun free event!
Project H2-MDK hydrogen implementation kits provide the maker, engineer, inventor, or hobbyist an adaptable and modular complete hydrogen power solution that radically reduces the amount of lithium-ion/polymer batteries in the environment. These kits make it easy to expand power or increase longevity (adding hydrogen fuel cells, and hydrogen as fuel respectively). Included in the kits are Horizon’s HYDROSTIK® solid state, certified, low-pressure hydrogen storage canisters. With Horizon’s advances in miniaturization, affordability, performance of hydrogen fuel cells, solid-state hydrogen storage, and the at-home based Horizon HYDROFILL® (hydrogen refueling station), there is now a complete, affordable, “personal hydrogen supply infrastructure” available to the hobbyist/ consumer.
From our press release:
“By combining open source hardware together with Fab Lab’s distributed fabrication and rapid-prototyping concept, we have created a socially-accelerated pathway towards clean energy innovation” said Carlos Uranga, co-founder of Fab Lab Store/ OpenFuelCell. “We hope to enable a people-driven, grassroots implementation of zero carbon solutions across the globe. Starting with low power products and hydrogen fuel infrastructure solutions such as those developed by Horizon, we hope to further catalyze the creation of a hydrogen-based economy from the ground up.”
