As the smallest, least expensive, not to mention first fuel cell car to be powered by saltwater, the Salt Water Fuel Cell Car gives children a chance to learn about new forms of clean energy, while building and powering their very own toy: Just add saltwater and go!
This environmentally and kid-friendly concept reflects the new, cleaner ways we think about automobile production and demonstrates first hand to children a more effective utilization of our natural resources.
Kids will be awed by the remarkable simplicity and effectiveness of the toy. After activating the fuel cell module with a saltwater mixture, the magnesium metal sheet (3 sheets included) can operate the car for about 5-7 hours continuously. If you want to park the vehicle, simply take out the fuel cell module and rinse with tap water and dry.
Environmentally safe, non-toxic, and clean - The Salt Water Fuel Cell Baja Runner is the larger brother of the award winning Salt Water Fuel Cell Car. It is more than twice the size and only 29 assembly parts! At 3.46 inches wide, 2.17inches high, and 4.65 inches in length, this huge wheeled vehicle is designed and intended to facilitate transport via salt water fuel technology. The Salt Water Fuel Cell Baja Runner Kit is OWI’s fifth generation and newest addition to its growing line of Salt Water Fuel Cell kits. How does this eco-friendly technology work? After activating the magnesium fuel cell module with a saltwater mixture, the chemical reaction generates electricity using saltwater as an electrolyte to power the on-board motor. The magnesium metal sheet can operate the Salt Water Fuel Cell Baja Runner for about 5-7 hours continuously. Children age eight and up, and conscientious parents will be awed by the remarkable simplicity. Budding scientists are just a few drops of salt water away from discovering the magic of this new form of clean energy and embracing a new eco-friendly concept that might have possibilities in the future. Let’s work together to be a part of the larger conversation of energy efficiency and celebrate environmental friendliness and sustainability. Empower your children with the knowledge to make our world a better place to live
