Topic: Understanding Earth and space systems - Heat in the environment
Students will research the three forms of heat transfer, then design and fabricate a pair of texting mitts that control heat transfer by conduction, convection, and radiation. To be texting mitts, they must also have precision surfaces that allow the user to wear their mitts and text using their choice of a touch screen or a keyboard. Students will design a fair test to determine how well their mitts control the three forms of heat transfer.
