Hands-on Activity

Ice Wars

Fun Forces
In this activity, students will create their own insulating "ice chambers" and then test them against the models made by their classmates.
Topic: Heat transfer
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.

Activity Difficulty Rating: 4 Each hands-on science activity has been ranked based on difficulty of set up and how difficult they are to perform. The rating scale is from 1 to 5, with 1 being the easiest and 5 being the most complicated.
