ABSTRACT
A small questionnaire-based study was carried out in order to get an impression of the current placement of fuel cells in the chemistry classroom in Germany and to develop a research-based, practice-oriented didactical sequence for the teaching of fuel cells. Based on a participative action research-approach, chemistry teachers at schools with a focus on STEM answered a questionnaire. This article gives insight into our approach and results of this preliminary study.
