Hydrogen Education Excites Future Engineers

One of the top ways to usher in a hydrogen-based future is to excite the students and young people of today who will be working in the hydrogen industry tomorrow. Just by being exposed to information about hydrogen energy, students will rethink their educational options in high school and college.

This is happening on two different levels. First, GM’s Project Driveway is giving direct exposure to students with GM’s hydrogen vehicles. Recently, Project Driveway drove their Chevrolet Equinox Fuel Cell and pulled into Fleetwood Area High School in Pennsylvania so that students could get a first hand look at a hydrogen car in action.

Second, organizations such as the NHA have created its Hydrogen Student Design Contest, which has received a record number of entries this year. Involved will be 36 teams of high school and college students from 16 countries and 5 continents.

It’s these kinds of education and exposure programs to young people which will normalize hydrogen fuel, cars and vehicles going forward. In 5 to 10 years from now these same students will be texting while driving their hydrogen cars instead of traditional gas guzzling vehicles (well, hopefully not texting as this is dangerous but you know what I mean). Normalizing hydrogen cars on the road one former student at a time will usher in a new era of clean energy in this country.

  1. We are intent to commercialize RET, a high efficiency, inexpensive, scalable, multifuel turbine to replace reciprocal engines obtaining over 150MPG on 139,000 btu/ gallon diesel fuel or equivalent btu on aerodynamic autos.. With Hydrogen RETs will greatly decrease the in-board complexity. Being able to retrofit reciprocals “cheaply”, RETs would also decrease the macro hydrogren distribution logistics. Being multifuel, hydrogen can be used when available. Sannerwind@gmail.com

  2. nice a day Hydrogen Fuel Cars and Vehicles Blog , i read your blog , be a nice blog and greatly. Best for me. bulk Critics and content. i will visit to read and comment your website.

  3. These are great hydrogen education initiatives by GM! GM is also one of the main sponsors of the EcoCAR Challenge for post secondary school across North America. Our EcoCAR team at the University of Waterloo in Ontario, Canada have actually retrofitted a GM SUV into a Hydrogen powered vehicle. If you wish to check out our team or the EcoCAR Challenge visit: http://www.uwaft.com and http://www.ecocarchallenge.org.
