Destination Zero Carbon makes an impact at SciFest 2012.
Thanks to DZC Singapore three Hydrogen Fuel Cell 1:10 scale cars made an appearance at SciFest with intense interest being shown from learners, educators, parents and the general public. Seeing is believing where observers were silenced by the sight of electrolysis of water being used to generate hydrogen for fuel cells to power the cars. The challenge is to reach 1 000 000 learners in South Africa in a 10 year period allowing learners from a wide variety of schools to experience career changing opportunities through the use of green technologies. The project is more about the development of human capital rather than simply racing these attention grabbing cars. Watch this space.
Just got this from our friends at Horizon West Africa (Mali):
The article is in French - this is the fast "google translate" to english - here it is, so enjoy....Horizon is building roots in all developing, and off-grid communities around the world, since many of its existing and future products are a benefit over existing alternatives in these markets. Good job guys - this is the start towards bigger and bigger solutions!
1000 Responses to questions from the YESA Community in 122 days of service - average 8.2 per day. The questions have been interesting to say the least (including deciphering them) but there is a trend towards deeper issues and signs of exciting innovation happening.
Our Singapore partners 3D Classworks, developers of the Destination Zero Carbon program, a global science/engineering/math education initiative, have made it just in time to present Destination Zero Carbon at the recent GESS show in Dubai. The program as you know uses our hydrogen solutions and minipak-grade fuel cells. I even saw the Horizon HYDROFILL on the table....first time in Dubai...
So far over 900 questions have been responded to over a period of 117 days with an average approaching 8 per day.
Preliminary analysis of some of the results
Some interesting questions for the past week:
