In this activity, students will create their own insulating "ice chambers" and then test them against the models made by their classmates.
Real World Science Topics:
- An exploration of how to use the design process
- An exploration of the factors that affect the rate of heat transfer
Students will gain an understanding of the engineering design process by designing containers that slow down the process of heat transfer.
