Hydrogen Fuel Cell Workshop

Westinghouse Savannah River Company in cooperation with USC is sponsoring a Hydrogen Fuel Cell teacher workshop on Friday, November 19, 2004. Each teacher attending the workshop will receive a Thames & Kosmos Fuel Cell car and experiment kit.
The workshop will be held from 9:00-4:00 at the West Quad Learning Center on the campus of the University of South Carolina. The complex has a 7,000 square-foot academic center and a 500-bed dorm with features such as solar panels and a 5-kilowatt fuel cell. USC is only the third university in the country to plan and construct a green complex like West Quad, which will qualify for LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification by the U.S. Green Building Council.

The morning sessions of the workshop will include:
-Presentation by scientists from the Savannah River National Laboratory Hydrogen department
-Presentation and tour of the facility by USC research professor, Dr. Tom Davis

The afternoon sessions will include:
-Activities from the Thams & Kosmos Fuel Cell and experiment
-Information on the Hydrogen Fuel Cell Car Challenge that will be held at USC Aiken during the Savannah River Regional Science Bowl on February 5, 2005.

The instructors for the Fuel Cell workshop will be Todd Clark and Aaron Schultz, Science Education Advisors from the U.S. Department of Energy.

USC Aiken will provide transportation from the Ruth Patrick Science Education Center parking lot to the West Quad Learning Complex. Please let me know if you would like to ride with us from Aiken to Columbia.
