H2 GRAND PRIX;
Unique Hydrogen Education
Programs For Students
The H2 GRAND PRIX is the world’s first program to focus on introducing hydrogen technologies to high
school students, enabling them to expand their knowledge and relevant skills in science, technology
and engineering. How was this done? We discussed this with the main organizer of H2GP PRO races
in Czechia, as well as the coordinator of H2GP PRO in Europe, Ing. Václav Bystrianský Ph.D.
What was the initial impulse for the creation of the
H2GP PRO project?
H2GP PRO was one of the first H2 GRAND PRIX
educational programmes offered by the Czech company
Horizon Educational, and it focused on the distribution
of educational tools for schools, through which students
could try electrolysis of water, make their own hydrogen,
use it in a fuel cell, and learn about the advantages and
disadvantages of these types of technologies.

What has been its development from the beginning
to the present?
The process is probably best outlined through the
conception of the H2GP PRO program, which has
since become our flagship project, standing as the
basis for the concepts of our other age categories.
We started the H2GP PRO program in 2015 and
today we have 300 high school teams around the
world and all the same rules apply.
