Our work with school children, colleges and education providers is key to the future success of clean, green energy. At Manchester Fuel Cell Innovation Centre, we believe that investing early in young minds benefits us all, now and tomorrow.
We want local children and young people from across Europe to experience the joy of scientific discovery and the satisfaction of understanding how things connect and work together. We want them to understand the benefits of alternative technologies - for them and the wider world.
We are working to embed this understanding from a young age by bringing classes of children into the Centre to learn about clean energy and by adding focused science, technology, engineering and mathematics skills into the curriculum at all levels of learning.
Discover our work with Schools
We are leading a partnership to deliver HySchools – an Erasmus + project that delivers hydrogen education in schools.
Working with seven other European Partners, we have developed and developed resource packs for pupils and teachers at secondary schools, as well as online resources including videos, to help educate the next generation of technology talent about clean energy, hydrogen and fuel cells.

Hydrogen Outreach Programme
We invite schools onto our campus to discover hydrogen technology, its uses and the potential of clean, renewable energy sources through interactive activities with our experts.
Here is an example of a day's programme of activities for School groups:
Hydrogen Fuel Cell Workshop 1
- Introduction to Hydrogen Fuel Cells and renewable, green, energy sources
- Exercises that look at the current state of energy including fossil fuels
- Interactive group activity to design hydrogen technologies
Hydrogen Fuel Cell Workshop 2
- Opportunity for learners to engage with hydrogen technology at the University
- Tour of the Manchester Fuel Cell Innovation Centre
