Get ready for the FCHgo international contest

discover the energy of hydrogen

Ready, steady, FCHgo!

Are you ready to explore the world of renewable energies?
Participate in the FCHgo contest and find out about Hydrogen and Fuel Cells!
Don’t miss this chance!

The International Award “FCHgo! DISCOVER THE ENERGY OF HYDROGEN” will start in January 2020 in the framework of the European project FCHgo – Fuel Cells HydroGen educatiOnal model for schools.

Topic?

Hydrogen Fuel Cells and sustainable energy

Who can apply?

School teams/classes from primary and secondary schools in Italy, Switzerland, Germany, Turkey, Poland and Denmark

FCHgo is financed by the European research & innovation programme Horizon 2020’s FCH Joint Undertaking. The project seeks to provide teachers with a full-fledged training and teaching kit about hydrogen fuel cells. The goal is to support the active teaching of the topic in classrooms and its introduction into school curricula.

By developing interactive games, stories and plays for teaching, the project creates a narrative path to FCH technology for pupils and fosters their hands-on experience with the topic. Despite hydrogen bearing great potential for the energy transition, it yet represents a niche scientific sector, little known or subject to prejudice and incorrect information. Hence, the FCHgo award is a great opportunity to bring hydrogen energy into classrooms.

How it works

Classes participating in the FCHgo award compete against each other within their category of school (primary or secondary). They will be evaluated by an international jury, assessing the level of creativity and technological innovation of the activities carried out and the products created.

Three teams per country (one for each school level) will be selected and invited to pitch their projects at an international award ceremony. The team with the most convincing presentation wins the FCHgo Award.
