Reflection: Classroom Setup Thermometers -- Tools of Polar Scientists - Section 2: Engage


Hand Boilers can be found in lots of different places: the internet, toy stores, novelty shops, even museums.  If you are not able to find one to use, this video clip from Steve Spangler Sick Science shows you how to make one yourself with a few simple items.  

It is a great demonstration and recreates the same process as the hand boiler I use in my Engage section.
