Below are resources to help teachers introduce students to the new and exciting world of hydrogen and fuel cells. While these technologies are complex, the principles behind them can be understood by middle school and high school science students. In fact, hydrogen and fuel cell concepts can be used to complement science lessons already taught in the classroom.

Lesson Plans and Materials

Lesson plans and materials are available for middle school and high school science classes.

H2 Educate Teacher and Student Guides—In 2005 the National Energy Education Development (NEED) Project's Teacher Advisory Board developed teacher and student guides for the DOE Hydrogen and Fuel Cells Program. Sentech, Inc., the Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Energy Association, Los Alamos National Laboratory, the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority, and the Fuel Cell Store provided support and technical assistance. The DOE education project concluded in 2011 but NEED has continued to update the guides.
