FSEC’s First Fuel Cell Course a Big Success!

It was standing-room only during the laboratory sessions at “The 2006 Short Course in Fuel Cell Technology,” held at FSEC February 5 – 8.  Three days of presentations and hands-on lab sessions were led by FSEC director Jim Fenton, Kevin Cooper of Scribner Associates, Russ Kunz of the University of Connecticut and Vijay Ramani of the Illinois Institute of Technology.

The course was presented by FSEC and co-sponsored by Scribner Associates and the Electrochemical Society.  Attendees included industry members, scientists, engineers, students and others from around the country interested in this new short course on basic and applied aspects of fuel cell technology, with an emphasis on polymer electrolyte and direct methanol fuel cells.  The course is planned to be held again later this year at the center.
