Curious Heat Conduction
One of our Science topics this term was Heat and Conduction. We learned all about conductors and insulators. To test our theories we set up and carried out an experiment. We filled three cups with boiling water. We added equal amounts of butter to the ends of a metal, wooden and plastic spoon. Next we added a bead on top of the butter. We observed which material let the heat pass through it quickly - melting the butter and causing the bead to fall into the water. See our predictions, Write ups and results below!
