Day 4 of 4--Engineering a Calorimeter: Modifying and Re-testing a Prototype to Inform Final Product Build

Unit 4: Thermodynamics
Lesson 10 of 11

Objective: SWBAT make modifications to their calorimeter prototype and test for success in function in order to develop a final product that they will use in a subsequent lab investigation (measuring specific heat capacity of an unknown metal).

Big Idea: Prototypes can be modified, re-tested, and undergo multiple iterations until a final product meets desired standards.
