An Energy Breakthrough: Tech Researchers Create New Type of Fuel Cell

Researchers in Michigan Technological University found an ultrafast alternative to the slow conventional fuel cells, increasing efficiency and performance. Like batteries, fuel cells produce energy through an electrochemical process. Unlike batteries, they don’t run down or require recharging. However, the potential advantages of fuel cells are offset by challenges that include cost, performance and durability. (Geiger, 2023)

7 Tips for Learning a New Technology Quickly

01

Reserve Our Time for Research & Exploration

  • As the first stage, the aim is to decide our goals behind learning the technology by getting an overview of it

  • Source for deeper understanding: official documentation and experts’ testimonials

  • A deadline for this step will make us more efficient and not overuse our time here

02

Identify All Prerequisites for the Technology 

​If we do not find out what skills or knowledge we are required to possess priorly to learn the particular technology, we will surely deal with a lot of problems later.

03

Find the Right Resources to Learn

  • Online Courses & Training Programs

  • Recommended Books

  • YouTube Videos

  • Seminars & Conferences

  • Do not hesitate to ask for help when encountering problems, because it will result in a lot of confusion and doubts about the technology later

      Who can help?

  • Our mentors, peers

  • Find an individual who is associated or working with the same technology

  • Join an online forum and discuss there

  • You can also reach out to our APAN Club, so we can bring your questions to our next interview guests

05

Practice What we Have Learned

​Getting our hands dirty will not only strengthen our fundamentals but will expose us to various other concepts and underlying mechanisms as well that we might not learn theoretically.

06

Put Our Knowledge to the Test

​It is a crucial step to validate whether we are going on the right track and have become proficient with the particular technology or not

07

Share Our Learning With Others

​It hones our skills in a greater way when we share our learning with others, especially those who are not familiar with this technology at all.
