Day 2 of 4--Engineering a Calorimeter: Designing and Testing a First Prototype

Unit 4: Thermodynamics
Lesson 8 of 11

Objective: SWBAT work within a small group to refine the design of a heat container that meets certain constraints as posed in a fictional business solicitation, and they will build and test a first prototype.

Big Idea: We can build a prototype that meets certain constraints and performs within specific parameters so that tests for success can be completed using that prototype.
