Ryan's Salt Water Fuel Cell Car kit Science Fair Project

Environmentally safe, non-toxic and clean. The Salt Water Fuel Cell Car is the smallest, cheapest and the first 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. 

Ages: 10+

    Amazing, but how does it work?

    I was amazed that just saltwater can power this car, but im wondering just how it works. Also what exactly is the air cathode? is it carbon or what?

    This is a well built car. My 9 yr old saw this and had to have it. I was skeptical, but it really does work! My son continues to show people and everyone is amazed by this car. Very cool, a great conversation piece, and some science learning for my son.

    First workshop is in the books! Wow, this is a GREAT kit. Easy to build and the finished product is fast & sturdy. I'm wondering if we can experiment with some other electrolytes between the Magnesium and what I presume is Manganese Dioxide (such as lemon juice, soda, etc). HOME RUN, OWI!!

    Amazing bit of technology

    Posted by Christopher Burgher on 4th Apr 2011

    When I saw the Salt Water Fuel Cell car for sale, I almost didn't believe it could truly run on salt water alone. So, being curious, I ordered one and lo and behold it actually does run on just salt water. The car is easy to build, totally safe, and I was stunned at how fast it would go. All of the pieces fit together snugly and the car's construction feels solid. It's amazing how much power just a little bit of salt water can produce when placed in a fuel cell. Buy this toy and wow your friends.
