Fuelling the Flight

Topic: 5C Gases around us

The first manned, hydrogen-powered plane has been successfully tested in the skies above Spain. It was powered by hydrogen fuel cells, which produce only heat and water as exhaust products. The tests could pave the way for a new generation of greener aircraft.

In this activity children will argue why a hydrogen-powered plane will be better for the environment. They will learn about other gases and their uses.
