Hydrogen Outreach Program for Education (HOPE)HOPE was developed to teach secondary school students about the potential and benefits of hydrogen as a fuel. The curriculum is intended as a supplement to existing instructional materials.
The curriculum involves plenty of fun-filled, hands-on activities to develop secondary school education. Includes over 75 lessons with labs, exercises, and demonstrations. The curriculum highlights the role of environmentally friendly hydrogen techniques, such as fuel cell technology.
Most importantly the curriculum uses hydrogen topics to teach chemistry basic science. Relevant learning in physics, biology, earth science, and environmental science are also included. In addition, the lesson activities are designed to reinforce mathematical learning. The complete HOPE package consists of the curriculum, two videos and a CD ROM.
The curriculum is organized into modules that consist of multiple lessons. The lessons provide guidance to the teacher, include student activities, and student assessment material. The high school curriculum contains seven modules:
The middle school curriculum contains three modules: (1) basics, (2) pollution solution, and (3) renewable power.
