8th grade scientists spent time this week calculating thermal energy transfer between thermal conductors in a unit called “Feel the Heat.” Students used heated water and aluminum cylinders to observe and calculate thermal energy transferring between the two objects. Many students were surprised to feel how hot the aluminum can get in a short amount of time (1 min.) Ask your students to explain this process at home. How is thermal energy transferred? What are some examples of good conductors and insulators?
