STEMbite: Heating up Ice

In a cool lesson, we discover that ice can vary in temperature. As heat is added and it approaches 32°F, it begins to melt. When it melts, it absorbs heat energy. If you want your drink to stay colder longer and not get watery, put colder ice in it so that it will take longer to reach the melting point. Use this little investigation to introduce latent heat during your thermodynamics unit.
