    Heat Transfer: The Great Ice Melt

    Heat transfer is the exchange of energy through physical systems, and it is occurring all the time. It makes cooking, weather, and life on Earth possible. In fact, how energy is transferred and conserved can create life or death situations.


    In this collaborative global project, students explore how heat is transferred between objects, how this transfer changes matter, and why it is so important to our lives. Students learn through a hands-on experiment allowing them to explore different conductors and insulators through melting ice.
