- Getting Started:
This lesson is designed to be used within the heat transfer unit as an engineering design project.
My goal is to teach students:
The difference in heat conductivity of different materials.
Engage students in thinking about the principles of engineering (designing to meet criteria determined by the desired result).
Total class time:
170 minutes (2 class blocks, 1 period for demo, in-class design, 1 period for student-requested informational experiments).
