Physics and technology go hand-in-hand in this practical demonstration of basic concepts in thermodynamics. By testing a simple prototype of an insulated glove, students learn about the process of homeothermic regulation and the variables that influence heat transfer. The challenge to improve upon their initial model introduces learners to the design process and the relations between form and function. Working in teams, your students will learn how to integrate their knowledge of fundamental scientific principles with properties of the materials at hand in a fitting display of technological mastery.
Card catalog description
Offers high school students a challenging, hands-on opportunity to compare the function and design of many types of handwear (from a hockey mitt to a surgical glove) and to design and test a glove for their own specifications.
