Description:

Learners apply their knowledge of heat transfer to design two cans - one that will retain heat and one that will cool down quickly. After constructing their cans, learners fill the cans with warm water then track how the temperature changes over time. As additional motivation, the activity can be presented as a contest between groups of learners to see which cans are the most successful. Resource contains suggestions for assessment and extensions.
