As we return to a more normal state across the country, UCell has been working hard to secure more school visits and events for the upcoming year. We are very grateful to announce that supporting us this year will be the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) through their Outreach Fund, which aims to provide support […]
After a long year of online outreach, this July saw the return of UCell’s first in-person teaching to junior scientists in Years 5, 7 and 8 at St. Paul’s Way Trust School. The Science Summer School gave students the opportunity to discuss the importance of sustainable energy and electrochemical energy storage systems such as fuel […]
In light of the pandemic, with all events being cancelled we decided to offer online school visits. We have delivered two A-level classes; one to Haggerston School sixth form and another to Callington Community College based in Cornwall. The talk covered all things energy production and storage and also delved into uni life. This lead […]
It’s International Women in Engineering Day! A day to emphasise the huge waves women are making in a predominately male field and changing the narrative to make this the norm. This post is dedicated to the incredible women engineers at UCell- who unambiguously prove that equality and diversity reap huge benefits. History of INWED During […]
The pandemic can’t stop us fulfilling our mission! June 10th marked a new cornerstone for UCell – the day that our outreach group went international! We delivered a Zoom class to America On Track- located in Orange County USA, America On Track are an afterschool leadership group that focuses on Civic Engagement with a focus […]
This March saw four of UCell’s finest journey up to Sandringham school in the Mirai to educate the next generation of scientists during science week. Throughout the day GCSE and A-Level students swapped out their regular science lessons for short interactive lectures in the school theatre. We discussed the importance of electrochemical energy systems in […]
Ucell at the Fuel Cells Systems and Engineering Course took part in July 2019 at UCL. The EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in ‘Fuel Cells and their Fuels’ is a multi-university flagship collaboration undertaking fuel cell research in all its forms. It aims to equip a generation of scientists and engineers with all the tools […]
Described as an ‘extravaganza of materials and making around the theme of GASES’, the Institute of Making hosted a fabulous ‘one-day, large-scale, drop-in and totally free festival’ on Saturday 26 October 2019. We were invited along to set up a stall and power a Coffee Van with our fuel cell stack. It was a great […]
Our summer school in the Department of Chemical Engineering at University College London is designed to give students a flavour for studying STEM subjects at a university level. This was the first year launching the summer school (August 2019) and it was held as a three day experience for A-level student Adnan. Adnan got in […]
In September UCELL attended the British Science Festival 2019 in Warwick, Europe’s longest standing science festival. The festival facilitates the connection between the public and scientists, engineers and technologists. Many enthusiastic visitors came by the UCELL stand to take thermal selfies and learn about hydrogen energy. We also demonstrated the use of solar energy to […]
This May UCell headed to the Castle Climbing Centre in Finsbury Park to take part in the summer sustainability fair hosted by PPL PWR and Make Your Own Shift.
On the last Saturday of June 2018, we held our workshop at The Calthorpe Project, Hydrogen – Fuel of the Future? The two weeks before the big day were devoted to getting everything ready: preparing the fuel stack and our demonstration kit cars, and Nick put in the extra mile to prepare an impressive demonstration […]
