Timo Thonhauser, associate professor of physics, will conduct an interactive outreach program at SciWorks science museum Friday, Nov. 21 from 9 -10 a.m. to teach school children about using alternative fuels like hydrogen. One of the highlights is a hydrogen fuel cell car that allows students to separate water into hydrogen and oxygen to form a gas that will power the car across the floor. Students from local and regional schools will be in attendance.
Thonhauser is a condensed matter theorist whose research is supported by a prestigious National Science Foundation CAREER Award, which recognizes a select few junior faculty nationwide who excel as teacher-scholars.
