Hot Cans and Cold Cans

Students investigate the physics of heating and cooling through conduction, convection, and radiation. Working in groups, they determine the best way to cool a can of water and warm a can of water. Temperature is taken at five minute intervals and they may use items provided to either cool the water or warm the water. Groups explain their heating and cooling devices to the class and report how successful the devices were.
